To Nathaniel P. Banks

Executive Mansion,         Washington,
Major General Banks.     August 9. 1864.

I have just seen the new Constitution adopted by the Convention of Louisiana; and I am anxious that it shall be ratified by the people. I will thank you to let the civil officers in Louisiana, holding under me, know that this, is my wish, and to let me know at once who of them openly declare for the constitution, and who of them, if any, decline to so declare. Yours truly A. LINCOLN
