443. Robert T. Lincoln to William H. Herndon.

Chicago, May 24 1867

My dear Mr Herndon:

I am very much obliged to you for letting me know about the books — I certainly would like to have a chance for some of them at least, for I do not own a single law book that ever belonged to my father. — I am so pressed by my business just now that I cannot go to Springfield as I would like to do about the matter and I would consider it a favor if you would have some one make a list of the books & prices which you think right & send it to me —

Very truly yours
Robert T. Lincoln
