To Edwin M. Stanton

Hon Sec of War Executive Mansion
Sir Washington Aug 9 1862

I have examined and seen tried the “Rafael Repeater” and consider it a decided improvement upon what was called the “Coffee Mill Gun” in these particulars that it dispenses with the great cost and liability to loss of the Steel cartridges and that it is better arranged to prevent the escape of gas. Other advantages are claimed for it upon which I cannot so well speak. While I do not order it into the service I think it well worthy of the attention of the Ordnance Bureau and should be rather pleased if it should be decided to put it into the service Yours Truly A LINCOLN
