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

Springfield Aug 17. 1858.

Mr Lincoln

I send enclosed, -- though I suppose you have been at Tazewell. Judge Trumbull came on Saturday -- he received your letter written at Beardstown. He goes to Alton this evening,-- I am not certain that he will go to Rushville, though I think it important. I also send you a letter from Sharpe

Since Trumbulls speech -- they are all mad.

No news from other counties since you left.

Judd has called a meeting of the Central Committee, here on the 28th and letters have been written to a large number of our friends, to be present -- you will not fail to be here. I am sick--

The City is jubilant on account of the messages by Telegraph.

Very truly &c

O.M. Hatch
