Ohio Delegation Petitions President Lincoln

June 25, 1863

President Lincoln meets with a group of Ohio Democrats who protest Administration handling of civil liberties and the case of former Ohio Congressman Clement Vallandigham.

President Lincoln waits several days before writing a detailed response.

President Lincoln writes Secretary of the Treasury  Salmon P. Chase regarding former Illinois Congressman William Kellogg, which has been lobbying for a cotton trading permit:

“Hon. William Kellogg will tell you plainly what he wants; and I wish him obliged so far as you can consistently do it. Please strain a point for him, if you do not have to strain it too far.
