18. John Rowbotham to William H. Herndon.

Cincinnatti. June 9/65—

Dear Sir:

Thanks for your letter, which came to hand this morning.

I quite understand your position, in respect to the contemplated work — and wish you every success.

Should you visit those scenes connected with Mr. Lincoln's early career in Indiana and Kentucky, I can give you some useful information, having been over the entire ground on a sketching tour. [1]
