To James C. Conkling

Private                                   War Department Washington City, D.C.
My dear Conkling             Aug. 27 1863.

I can not leave here now. Herewith is a letter instead. You are one of the best public readers. I have but one suggestion. Read it very slowly.

And now God bless you, and all good Union-men. Yours as ever

A. LINCOLN
