To John M. Schofield

Gen. Schofield           Washington City, D. C.
St. Louis, Mo.            [July 13 1863]

I regret to learn of the arrest of the Democrat editor. I fear this loses you the middle position I desired you to occupy. I have not learned which of the two letters I wrote you, it was that the Democrat published; but I care very little for the publication of any letter I have written. Please spare me the trouble this is likely to bring

A. LINCOLN
