To Thomas J. Turner [1]

Hon: Thos. J. Turner: Springfield,
Dear Sir: April 26. 1850.

I came home from the circuit four days ago, and found your letter in waiting. To-day I made some corrections of mistakes in the descriptions of the land and filed the Bill. Process is issued. In this court we can not bring in non-resident defendants by publication as we do in the State courts; but I [think] service can be had on Kemper, as he was here a few days since, and has gone to the Rock River country looking after this very land. If not, I suppose both he and Bradshaw will enter their appearance. In haste, yours as ever A. LINCOLN
