D. M. Irwin:

Dear Sir. Above is the Bill as you requested me to send you. Logan only attended the first trial in the circuit court. I, alone, that is without any partner attended the case in the Supreme court. In the Chancery case, Mr. Herndon was my partner. I mention all this to explain the three separate bills. Yours &c. A. LINCOLN
