President Lincoln Meets with Kentucky Delegation

October 6, 1864

President Lincoln interviews several people from Christian County, Kentucky, about state politics.   Before the meeting, Tennessee Governor Andrew Johnson had written President Lincoln: “I have learned that Col B. H. Bristow and Mr John [Feloud?] of Christian County Ky are about to visit Washington on business of importance to their County. I most heartily commend them to your favorable consideration and request a compliance with their request, if not incompatible with public interests.”

Illinois legal colleague and “good friend” Ebenezer Peck visits the White House. President Lincoln writes Treasury Secretary William P. Fessenden: “The bearer, Judge Peck, is my good friend, whom I hope the Sec. of Treasury will see & hear.”
