Urbana, IL.

Editor of Urbana "Constitution" writes: "Among the notables who have attended our Court the past week, Hon. A. Lincoln stuck up prominently. We regret to say that his eyesight is failing him seriously: tall as he is, he appears to be entirely unable to see far enough to get a glimpse of that U.S. Senatorship." In court, Lincoln writes amendment to bill in Dean v. Kelly et al., injunction case, and writes complainant's affidavit. Injunction is granted on condition complainant gives bond for $1,000 penalty and pays costs and damages. Record; Herndon-Weik Collection, Library of Congress, Washington, DC.
