Monday, September 7, 1840.+-

Equality, IL.

Lincoln debates Josiah Lamborn. "On Monday . . . Circuit Court commenced in Equality. . . . Here Mr. Lincoln in persuance to the duty assigned him, again 'talked to' our deluded sovereigns. His speeches were ingenious, and well calculated to command attention, and he was listened to, with so much patience, that the Whigs were in extacies." Register, 16 October 1840.

Lincoln and Lamborn also debate again at Shawneetown, apparently before they trade blows at Equality.
