The following transcript has been adapted from the Abraham Lincoln Papers at the Library of Congress.

Dear Lincoln

I go home this afternoon and sorry that I could not see you-- As soon as Judge Trumbull and yourself arrange your appointments send me a list of them I want to publish them in connection with the Congressional appointments and make a [flare?] of them in the News papers-- Of course in your arrangements you will leave some time for any unexpected but necessary call

Allow me to suggest that in your next joint debate where you have the opening you make your entire opening a series of charges against Douglass [Douglas] leaving all statement of your own views for your reply-- There is no danger now of your personal positions being mistaken

And I want one general indictment against Douglass beginning with the repeal of the Missouri Compromise

Yr friend

N B Jud
