Lincoln, Abraham, 1809-1865.

Annotation

[1]   AD, I-Ar. Lincoln wrote this as an individual bill bearing the title ``A bill for an act exempting Revolutionary pensioners from taxation on loaned money,'' but immediately following the introduction of an ``act to amend an act concerning the public revenue, approved February 1837,'' Lincoln moved his bill as an amendment in the form of an additional section. Both were referred to the committee on finance and died there, although a new bill bearing the title ``An act to amend an act concerning the Public Revenue, approved 26th February, 1839'' was reported from the committee on January 13 and finally became law without Lincoln's section providing for Revolutionary pensioners.
