To Adam Adams 
I have talked with Peters;  and he is not certain; but inclines to re[me]mber that you were present when the deed was made. That wont do. Turner writes me that he has found out where Bradshaw is. Do you know what he will swear? Better go right to Turner, & takes [sic] measures to get Bradshaw's deposition. I write to Turner by this mail. Yours truly A. LINCOLN---
 ALS, owned by Miss Paula Angle, Chicago, Illinois. Lincoln's note is written on the back of Adams' letter to Lincoln, November 1, 1854. For further information on this case, see previous letters to Adams and to Thomas J. Turner.
 Judge Onslow Peters, before whom the deed in question had been executed, according to Adams. Adams maintained he was not present himself, and suggested that Peters could verify the fact.
