Abraham Lincoln, defendant; Lincoln's most interesting lawsuit, by William H. Townsend ...
|Main Author:||Townsend, William H. 1890-1964.|
Boston, Houghton Mifflin Company, 1923.
A petition was filed in the Fayette Circuit Court, Lexington, Ky., May, 1853, by Edward Oldham and Thomas Hemingway, surviving partners of Oldham, Todd & Company, claiming that Abraham Lincoln collected certain money, as their attorney, which was not paid over. Four depositions, constituting the proof for Lincoln, were filed in the Fayette Circuit Court, November 23, 1853, and so completely was the charge refuted that the plaintiffs on January 16, 1854, filed a motion to dismiss the case, which was done at their cost, February 10, 1854.
The facsimiles here given are taken from the records of the Fayette Circuit Court and from letters of Abraham Lincoln.
