To Mrs. Sarah B. Meconkey

Mrs. Sarah B. Meconkey.        Executive Mansion,
Madam:                                        Washington, May 9. 1864.

Our mutual friend, Judge Lewis tells me you do me the honor to inquire for my personal welfare. I have been very anxious for some days in regard to our armies in the field, but am considerably cheered, just now, by favorable news from them. I am sure you will join me in the hope for their further success; while yourself, and other good, mothers, wives, sisters, and daughters, do all you and they can, to relieve and comfort the gallant soldiers who compose them. Yours truly A. LINCOLN
