527. Thomas H. Nelson to Jesse W. Weik.

Terre Haute, Ind. Sept. 16th. 1887

My Dear Sir,

My version of the amusing incident to which you refer, is substantially told in the enclosed slip [1] from the T.H. Express of several years ago.

Mr. Lincoln used to tell the story with many ludicrous variations.

Very Truly Yours
Thomas H. Nelson
