made upon the quotas as now fixed. After the first draft, the Second,
Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, Seventh, Eighth, Sixteenth, Seventeenth, Twenty-
first, Twenty-fifth, Twenty-ninth, and Thirty- first will be enrolled for the
purpose, and in the manner stated in my letter of the 7th inst The sama
principle will be applied to the now outstanding districts when they shall
come in. No part of my former letter is repudiated by reason of not
being restated in this, or for any other cause.

Your obedient servant,

A. LINCOLN.

The draft in New York was resumed on the 19th of An

of the public peace, it encountered no further

Some difficulty was experienced in Chicago, and the
Mayor and Comptroller of that city addressed the Presi

their cities and counties. Meanwhile, you need not be uneasy until you
again hear from here. A. LINCOLN.

Subsequently, in reply to further representations on the
subject, the same gentlemen received the following :

WASHINGTON, September 7, 1863.

Youra of August 29th just received. I suppose it was intended by Con

dependence upon any other Government, State, City, or County. It is,
however, within the range of practical convenience to confer with the
Governments of States, while it is quite beyond tliat range to have co\
respondence on the subject with counties and cities. They are too nu
merous. As instances, I have corresponded with Governor Seymour, but
Eot with Mayor Qpdykt; with Governor Curtin. but not with Mayo r
