569. Edward L. Pierce to William H. Herndon.

Milton Mass 23 Dec 1889

My dear Sir.

I send you by this mail a parcel in large envelope containing my notes on Mr Lincoln's visit to Mass in 1848 — and other matters — this being in accordance with your request. [1] I also as you desired, return you the letters I send you some weeks since but as they are fully covered by the better prepared M.S.S. which I now send, it may be as well to destroy them to simplify matters.

Please let me know that the M.S.S have reached you safely. In case you do not ever use the material I send, I would like the MSS on the visit of 1848 returned — as it might be of interest to have printed here.

What I send is entirely at your disposal — to do as you like with — using in whole or in part.

Yours truly
Edward L Pierce
