In the fall of 1858, following the Lincoln-Douglas debates but prior to the 1858 Illinois senatorial election, Captain James N. Brown, a Republican legislative candidate, asked Abraham for a statement of Lincoln’s view on Race that he could use to fend off Democratic criticism. Lincoln responded by pasting a number of extracts from his speeches into a memoranda book and (along with an eight page letter) sent them to Candidate Brown for reference use during the remaining days of the campaign. Despite Lincoln’s assistance, Brown lost his own election (as Lincoln did to Stephen Douglas for the U.S. Senate), but kept the memoranda book here reproduced.

A unique item for  discerning Lincoln collectors. [jp] [ph:L]
