Lincoln replies to letter from Gustave Koerner. Summarizing status of litigation affecting Ohio and Mississippi Railroad Co., he adds: "Will you please remember that our Sangamon Circuit Court commences Augt. 10—when I suppose our Quo Warranto case will come up, and when I shall be glad to have the benefit of your legal assistance." He writes to Lyman Porter & Co., Lafayette, Ind., merchants, that he can no longer regularly attend court in Tazewell County. He tells William H. Young, lawyer, that he and Herndon can join in case, but Lincoln will be in Chicago much of next term. Abraham Lincoln to Gustave P.
