407. Robert T. Lincoln to William H. Herndon.

Chicago Dec 14 /66

My dear Sir:

An old friend Dr. Smith, [1] now Consul at Dundee in Scotland, has written me asking me to give to him a certain book of Western History once owned by my father, — I wish very much to do so if I can find the book — I remember a year ago, a young man in your office showed me the book taking it from a case on the South side of the room — I think the name is "Western Annals" [2] — If still there will you be kind enough to have it well wrapped & sent by mail to my Mother mark "Free" — it needs no postage.

Very sincerely Yours
Robert T. Lincoln
