To Samuel D. Marshall 
I have wondered very much why you never wrote me, concerning the Dorman & Lane case, since I wrote you, as to the decision of it in the Supreme court. I learn this morning at the clerk's office, that Lane has not, as yet, taken out the order remanding it; and I think it possible, he may have abandoned it. You, perhaps, know his intention. The case of Gatewood vs. Wood & Wood---has that been settled? or how stands it?
At the request of Mr. Eddy,  I attended a case in the Supreme court of Rawlings against Field,  your father, Mr. Eddy & some others, and got the judgment reversed. This was no business of yours, and I now only ask, as a favor of you, that if Mr. Eddy is well you say to him I would like to have the little fee in the case, if convenient.
Please write me on the receipt of this. Yours forever
