1 Abraham Lincoln Autograph Endorsement Signed rewarding one of his early Illinois presidential sponsors. Trumbull says that N.M. Knapp should be appointed & I strongly so incline myself. A.Lincoln Jan. 15, 1863
Washington 1863 Hardcover Very Good Signed by Author
A small laid paper note to an unnamed recipient inclining to support Illinois Senator Lyman Trumbull's recommendation that Nathan M. Knapp be appointed [as Paymaster in the United States Army]. Certainly the same N.M Knapp from the Springfield/Winchester delegation to the 1860 Republican convention who had written to Lincoln during the 1860 convention: "Things are working: keep a good nerve - be not surprised at any result - but I tell you your chances are not the worst. We have got Seward in the attitude of the representative Republican of the East - you at West. We are laboring to make you the second choice of all the delegations we can, where we can't make you first choice. We are dealing tenderly with the delegates taking them in detail and making no fuss. Be not too expectant, but rely upon our discretion. Again I say brace your nerves for any result."(James A. Hamilton, Reminiscences of James A. Hamilton; or Men and Events at Home and Abroad, during Three Quarters of a Century (Letter to James A. Hamilton). , May 31, 1860, pp. 453-454, footnote 19). Even earlier, in March, Knapp wrote: "I want Abe to run; then I want a picture of him splitting rails on the Sangamon Bottom, with 50 cts per hundred marked on a chip placed in the fork of a tree nearby. I think it will win." (N. M. Knapp to Ozias M. Hatch, Winchester, Illinois, 12 March 1860, Hatch Papers, Lincoln Presidential Library, Springfield.); 32mo; Signed by Author
