To Nicholas H. Ridgely [1]

N. H. Ridgely, Esq Pekin,
Dear Sir: May 1. 1856

I have just examined the papers and record of the partition case mentioned in your letter, and found them all right → , except the Sheriff's return of the service of process on the child; and as the old Sheriff, who made the service, was here, I got leave of the court, & had him to amend the return. It is all right now, I think. Yours truly



[1]   ALS, IHi. Nicholas H. Ridgely had written Lincoln to clear a flaw in the title of the land on which the Springfield Gas Works stood.
