Gentlemen June 5. 1851

I reached home from the circuit yesterday, after an absence; and hence your letter of May the 8th. was not sooner answered. The arrangement to use the Hoyt evidence, [2] in the Rock-Island cases, was made before the adjournment of the Legislature, and I so informed our clients then. This I believe is all you seek to know. Yours truly A. LINCOLN
