In the Champaign County Circuit Court, Lincoln serves as the judge in the case of Chaddon v. Beasley et al., a dispute over an unpaid promissory note. Lincoln orders "stricken from the file" a plea of abatement filed by Barnett Z. Greene, "a defendant not served with process issued herein." The Court also denies the defendants' request "to plead to the merits" because they make their request "now at 8 oclk P. M. of the last day of term," which Lincoln deems, "comes too late." Lincoln orders the Court clerk to assess the damages. The clerk assesses the damages at $409.60, and the Court orders the defendants to pay plaintiff Lyman D. Chaddon the damages and the court costs.
