Lincoln writes to Chicago attorney Jonathan Y. Scammon regarding money due to Kinzie & Hall from the estate of Samuel Musick, and signs the letter "Stuart & Lincoln." Lincoln writes, "We suppose there is a small sum in the hands of our Probate Justice due to the claim of Kinzie & Hall against Musick. Procure an order to the Probate Justice from Kinzie & Hall to pay over to us what may be due them, and we will draw it and send it to you." After Kinzie & Hall authorize the Probate Justice to pay the judgment due to them to Lincoln, Lincoln will forward the money to Scammon.Abraham Lincoln to Jonathan Y.
