Notice to Illinois Legislature
of a Bill in Relation to State and County Roads [1]

Mr. Speaker. [July 13, 1837]

I give notice that on monday next I shall ask leave to introduce a bill for an act in relation to State & County roads.

Annotation

[1]   AD, I-Ar. Although Lincoln wrote the notice, Richard N. Cullom, representative from Tazewell County, is recorded in the House Journal as the member giving the notice on July 13 (misprinted July 11). The bill was apparently never introduced.
