Hon. Richard Yates

Dear Sir -

I should like very much to attend the opening of the coming session of our legislature & note the contrast between it & the one you "vetoed", but my business arrangements are such that it will be impossible.

Allow me however to express the hope that your unswerving devotion to the Union & especially to the interests of Illinois soldiers will find its reward in the just appreciation which that legislature should at once attest, by giving you a place next in honor to our worthy Illinois President in the council of the Nation.

Yours very truly

John V. Farwell

His business arrangements will prevent him from coming down to the Legislature.

Hopes for your election
