Lincoln draws up a contingent fee agreement between John T. Stuart, Stephen T. Logan, Edward D. Baker, and himself with Mary Anderson and her son Richard. In Wright et al. v. Adams, a bill in chancery case, the Andersons along with Joel Wright sue James Adams in the Sangamon County Circuit Court. According to the agreement, the attorneys are to have one-half of a ten-acre tract if they successfully sue Adams. The case becomes the basis for a controversy involving Lincoln, Logan, and Adams that culminates with Logan's libel suit against Adams, Logan v. Adams.Photocopy.
