Civilian Letter. Wheeling, WV November 26, 1860. 2 1/2pp just after the election with outstanding political content:“...Dear Brother, Four letters come to hand some two weeks ago and should have been answered sooner. Hope you will excuse the delay & I am glad to learn that you now getting along so well The election is over and of course the excitement is past to a great extent except as to the position that the New President will take towards the South. I should be glad to see Lincoln to day in the White House as I believe him much more conservative than President Buchanan and I trust he has sufficient decisions to enforce the Laws It is my opinion that his cabinet selection will be from the most conservative men in the party. Such men as Seward, Chase, … will probably be provided for by the Past officers in the Principal cities or sent from home on a foreign mission where their abolition doctrines will have no injurious influence but enough of this. I am getting along well Hennie is much better than when I wrote you before the babe grows finely I have not seen Elizi and Cecil in some time She gave a party a few nights since Truman was there....” In Fine Condition.
