1 The following are extracts from Mr. Lincoln's letters written during the campaign in answer to his position with reference to the anticipated uprisings in the Southern States. They are here published for the first time:[From a letter to L. Montgomery Bond, Esq., Oct. 15, 1860.1
I certainly am in no temper and have no purpose to embitter the feelings of the South, but whether I am inclined to such a course as would in fact embitter their feelings you can better Judge by my published speeches than by anything I would say in a short letter if I were inclined now, as I am not, to define my position anew.[From a letter to Samuel Haycraft, dated, Springfield, Ill., June 4, 1860.]
