405. John H. Wickizer to William H. Herndon.

Chicago Ills 13 Dec 1866

My Dear Friend

I send copy of last note I rd from Mr Lincoln Its date was the last time I ever looked upon that benign countenance — the last grasp of his friendly hand —

You ask me to note his religious sentiments. I have no well defined indication of his religious sentiments I think he was naturally religious, but very liberal in his views, I think he believed in "Jesus Christ, and him crucified." — I will see you at Springfield during the session of Legislature. [1]

Yours Truly
J H Wickizer
