A good 1860 presidential election letter, 2pp. 4to., written by Charles Wall, Urbana, [Ohio], Oct. 13, 1860 to his uncle concerning a crazy relative and canvassing for Stephen Douglas in 1860, in part: "…the last time they spoke of Benjamin he was better. He was here when he was taken and was very bad. So much so that he would not let me come near him. When he returned from the asylum he seemed to comprehend his condition fully and seemed very much troubled about it. His mind is very much affected…I hope he will recover in time and be useful to himself and others. The political world is considerable excited…at present and everyone is conjecturing as to whom will be president. for the next four years but it seems that none have as yet received a revelation as to what the final result will be. I have canvassed a little in this county for Douglas and think we will carry it by a small democratic majority this fall and I hope under this direction of a beneficent providence we will as a nation make that choice…for the common good of all and secure to prosperity the common blessing of that instrument which was left us by the wisdom of our fathers for our future chart to direct us us clear of all political dangers of every kind and…will make us a great, as well as happy, people…Charles Wall…".
