Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln. Volume 2.
Lincoln, Abraham, 1809-1865.
C. Ballance, Esq Springfield,
Dear Sir: July 27, 1855

Your letters of the 23rd. & 24th., the first having nothing, and the other $20 in it, are both received. Money is always acceptable to me; but when I left Chicago, I was not in ``extremis'' on that subject.

Browning had written me that the court was hung in our Hall case. [2] Yours as ever A. LINCOLN---
