Lincoln letter turns up on Antiques Roadshow

Written in the summer of 1860, the letter is addressed to William Jones, an early employer of Lincoln’s in Indiana.  Jones went on to serve in the Union Army despite being well advanced in years, losing his life at Atlanta in 1864.  This document is not included in the Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln, although a few others with the same date made it into the collection.
