This Autograph Letter is Signed, “C. Loll,” in brown ink on light blue period paper, at Baltimore, MD, 8” x 5.25” with Integral Sheet. This Presidential Candidate Letter reads:

“Balto. Jan 6, [18]64, -- My Dear Charley - I am in receipt of yours of the 4th from Lancaster. I received your telegram Saturday morning and shipped the collars at once to Reading by express. The letters were already in the box when I received yours from Weisburg. I am glad to hear the mare is doing well and hope the colt continues to improve. Had a visit from Franklin today, he is here to nominate Lincoln. I enclose letter from William B. the receipt from Mr. Dierky. I continue to Remain with regards to Harry. - Yours Truly, C. Loll.”

This letter helps trace the steps of the nomination of Lincoln for his Second term as President. Small tear on the bottom left-hand corner; not affecting overall condition. An amazing letter that reflects the everyday affairs of people who were connected with the nomination of Lincoln.
