To Frederick A. Thomas 
Enclosed you find your License by which you will see I have had you regularly enrolled as an attorney. The clerk is entitled to a fee of one dollar, which I have promised to see paid in one month. I therefore wish you to send me the money. It will take two dollars of State Bank or Shawneetown.
As to the customary fee in Bankruptcy for which you enquire, I can not say there is any custom on the subject. On the reverse side hereof, is a commission to Ryan  as Bankrupt commissioner. Your friend A. LINCOLN
