Bloomington, IL.

"What does the New-York Tribune mean by it's constant eulogising, and admiring, and magnifying Douglas?" Lincoln writes Trumbull from Bloomington, where he is still attending McLean Circuit Court. If the "Tribune" continues to praise him to its thousands of Illinois readers, defections will result. "I am not complaining. I only wish a fair understanding." He also writes to William H. Davenport, client, explaining why Davenport v. Sconce and DonCarlos has been delayed in Vermilion Circuit Court.
