To Henry E. Dummer [1]

H. E. Dummer, Esq. Springfield,
My dear Sir: March 10- 1855

A firm of lawyers in New-York have sent me a money bond, of $2000 for collection. Both the parties to the bond reside in NewYork,Page  308 but the obligor has a farm of 330 acres, within about a mile of Rushville in Schuyler county, out of which, by an attachment suit, the obligee wishes collection to be made. As I do not practice in Rushville, I have concluded to send you the job, if you will write me, saying you will take it. What say you? The attorneys who send me the claim, say their client is a good responsible man. Yours as ever A. LINCOLN---
