Executive Mansion, Washington, April 24, 1862 Hon. Post Master General My dear Sir[,] The member of Congress from the District including Tiffin O. called of me about the Post-Master at that place--I believe I turned over a dispatch to you from some person there asking a suspension, so as for them to be heard, or something of the sort. If nothing, or nothing amounting to anything, has been done, I think the suspension might now be suspended, and the commission go forward. Yours truly, A. Lincoln
