Yours of the 10th. Oct. enclosing five dollars was taken from the office in my absence by Judge Logan  who neglected to hand it toPage 305 me till about a week ago, and just an hour before I took a wife. Your other of the 3rd. Inst. is also received. The Forbes & Hill case, of which you speak has not been brought up as yet.
I have looked into the Dorman & Lane case,  till I believe I understand the facts of it; and I also believe we can reverse it. In the last I may be mistaken, but I think the case, at least worth the experiment; and if Dorman will risk the cost, I will do my best for the ``biggest kind of a fee'' as you say, if we succeed, and nothing if we fail. I have not had a chance to consult Logan since I read your letters, but if the case comes up, I can have the use of him if I need him.
Nothing new here, except my marrying,  which to me, is matter of profound wonder. Yours forever A. LINCOLN
