Lincoln writes on the verso of a letter from Thomas McNamara asking the president for a paymaster appointment, citing the highest order of testimonials from Simon Cameron, B. J. Coffey, Thaddeus Stevens, and others.
Though there is much showthrough, Lincoln’s ink is bold and clearly readable. Clean fold tears have been expertly conserved.
