To Francis P. Blair, Sr.

Hon. F. P. Blair                      Executive Mansion,
My dear Sir                            Washington, July 30, 1863.

Yours of to-day with inclosure is received. Yesterday I commenced trying to get up an expedition for Texas. I shall do the best I can. Meantime I would like to know who is the great man Alexander, that talks so oracularly about “if the president keeps his word” and Banks not having “capacity to run an omnibus on Broadway.” How has this Alexander’s immense light been obscured hitherto? Yours truly

A. LINCOLN
