32. Horace White to William H. Herndon

Chicago, June 20 1865.

My Dear Sir:

Yours of the 15th was duly received. I have not had time to attend to your request until this evening. I enclose you a list of Mr L's speaking appointments as I find them in the Tribune. I know that he made more speeches than are here mentioned as he sometimes found that he had time to do so, without interfering with the appointments previously advertised. The joint debates are marked thus X.

I was not aware until I received your letter that you were really preparing a biography having supposed before that you were merely preparing a lecture or memoir. I am very glad that you have taken the task in hand. I will see it has a good notice in the Tribune in a day or two.

Yours truly
Horace White
