Lincoln Informed Pickens that Fort Sumter Would be Supplied

President Abraham Lincoln sent a message to Governor Francis W. Pickens of South Carolina that he would attempt to send supplies to Fort Sumter:

…an attempt will be made to supply Fort Sumter with provisions only, and that if such attempt be not resisted, no effort to throw in men, arms, or ammunition will be made without further notice, except in case of an attack on the fort.
