Lincoln replies to firm of attorneys in Paris who sent claim against Illinois Central. "I have been in the regular retainer of the Co. for two or three years;" he writes, "but I expect they do not wish to retain me any longer." He adds that he is going to Chicago on 21st and will ascertain his status. If discharged, as he expects, he will be glad to handle claim.
