Springfield, IL.

Lincoln discovers that his horse is missing "from a stable in Springfield." Later, in a Springfield, newspaper ad, he announces that he is looking for a "large bay horse, star in his forehead, plainly marked with harness; supposed to be eight years old; had been shod all round, but is believed to have lost some of his shoes, and trots and paces. Any person who will take up said horse, and leave information at the Journal [newspaper] office, or with the subscriber at New-salem, shall be liberally paid for their trouble." Sangamo Journal (Springfield, IL), 26 March 1836, 2:7.
