To Edwin M. Stanton

September 29, 1862

It seems by the within that there is danger of the different religious denominations having some collision in their ministering among the colored people about Port-Royal, and perhaps else-where. I should think each church should minister according to it’s own rules, without interference by others differing from them; and if there still be difficulties about places of worship, a real christian charity, and forbearance on the part of all might obviate it. With these views, I submit the subject to the Secretary of War.

Sep. 29. 1862. A. LINCOLN
