ADS, Fayette County (Kentucky) Circuit Court files, Petition of Edward Oldham and Thomas Hemingway, May 11, 1835. In Lincoln's hand except for the signature of Samuel G. Craig and the attestation: ``Filed & Noted June 13th 1853. Att Tho. S. Read clk.'' Although this document is part of a law case, it is not properly speaking one of attorney Lincoln's cases and therefore has been included with the letter to Kinkead (supra). See also the notice to Hemingway and Oldham, September 22, 1853, and further correspondence with Kinkead, July 6, September 13 and 30, 1853, March 31 and June 16, 1854, infra.
