Hon: George Ashmun Springfield, Ills. June 4 1860

My dear Sir It seems as if the question whether my first name is ``Abraham'' or ``Abram'' will never be settled. It is ``Abraham'' and if the letter of acceptance is not yet in print, you may, if you think fit, have my signature thereto printed ``Abraham Lincoln.'' Exercise your own judgment about this. Yours as ever,

A. LINCOLN.
