Lincoln, Abraham, 1809-1865.

To George B. Kinkead [1]

Geo. B. Kinkead, Esq Springfield, Ills.
Dear Sir: March 31- 1854

Your note of January last, informing me that Messrs Oldham & Hemingway [2] had dismissed their suit against me, was duly received. I write this now merely to say that I expect and desire youPage  217 to be paid a separate fee for your attention to that suit; and to authorize you to retain what you shall deem reasonable on that account, out of any money of mine which is, or may come into your hands. If nothing further for me, is, or is likely to be in your hands, write me and I will forward you the amount. Very truly Yours &c. A. LINCOLN
