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

Chicago Decr 27 /66

My dear Mr Herndon

Your letter of yesterday is at hand and I am very glad to find that I misunderstood your language and that you do understand my feelings on that subject. There is no need of saying anthing more about it.

Dr. Smith did not say the book was his — merely that my father had once loaned it to him and that he desired very much to possess it. You did all right about it of course — I can doubtless hunt up something that will please the Dr. quite as well.

Very sincerely yours
Robert T. Lincoln
