To Gideon Welles

Hon. Gideon Welles. Executive Mansion,
My dear Sir May 8, 1861.

I understand that there is some opposition to the appointment of Capt. G. V. Fox to the clerkship we talked of. My wish, and advice is, that you do not allow any ordinary obstacle prevent his appointment. He is a live man, whose services we cannot well dispense with. Yours very truly A. LINCOLN.
