To Richard Lloyd 
You see the purport of the within letter. I can do no more in the case. I think you better employ another---either Judge Logan  here, or Judge Purple  at Peoria, & let him correspond with Grimshaw4 at once. Yours truly A. LINCOLN
 ALS, IHi Richard Lloyd of Henry, Illinois, wrote Lincoln under date of July 10, 1858, ``Can you form any opinion as to when my case will be called. Powell vs. Ament et al? Please keep me advised. . . .'' (DLC-RTL).
 Stephen T. Logan.Page 483
 Norman H. Purple.
 Probably Jackson Grimshaw, an attorney of Pittsfield, Illinois, who moved to Quincy, and entered partnership with Archibald Williams in 1857.
