To James W. Somers 
Dear Sir June 19. 1858.
Yours of the 10th. in relation to the suit of Thompson, White & Pryor vs Wilson & Park, was received some days ago. There was no ground upon which to stand the case off. Judgment is entered for $555.33, besides costs not yet made up. If you send me the $200 I will apply it on the judgment any day; but I think you need be in no great hurry about it.  I charge no fee in the case.
Please tell your Uncle William  that judgment also went against
Page 470Miller & Jaquith, there being no ground upon which to stand off.
Why were you not here to the convention? We had a great time.
Yours very truly A. LINCOLN---
