Lincoln participates in four cases in the U.S. Circuit Court. In the case of S.C. Davis & Co. v. Mace, Lincoln & Herndon ask the Court to allow them to withdraw a promissory note that they had previously filed for the plaintiff, and Judge Samuel H. Treat grants the request. Lincoln and Norman H. Purple represent plaintiff Lloyd Powell in two ejectment suits. In the case of Powell v. Kern, the attorneys for both parties agree to ask the Court to withdraw an earlier request "to vacate the rule to plead." The attorneys for both parties make the same request of the Court in the case of Powell v. Ament & Beer, and they file the agreement with the Court. In the case of Gale v. Morgan County Bank, Logan & Lincoln represent the bank, which plaintiff Dewitt C. Gale is suing for $10,000 in damages. Gale made deposits totaling $4,000, and he claims that the bank failed to credit his account. After occupying "the time of the Court until the hour of adjournment," Judge Treat orders the trial, in its third day, continued until the next morning. Order, 15 January 1858, S.C. Davis & Co. v.
