To Simon Cameron

Hon. Simon Cameron, Executive Mansion,

My dear Sir As you have, more than once, expressed a desire for a change of position, I can now gratify you, consistently with my view of the public interest. I therefore propose nominating you to the Senate, next monday, as minister to Russia. Very sincerely Your friend A. LINCOLN.
