    Abraham Lincoln. Two Autograph Endorsements Signed "And deft. doth the like / Parker & Lincoln p.d." Penned on an Autograph Document Signed by N.H. Purple, attorney for the plaintiff in Amos Eggleson vs Tarrant A. Perkins, Tazewell Co. [Ill.], no date [docketed September 1852], one and one-half pages, folio, on blue paper. The plaintiff disputes several pleas of the defendant and specifically accuses him of "falsely and fraudulently" persuading the plaintiff to accept $25 in discharge of a judgment by claiming that such settlement was recommended by the defendant's then attorney, A.H. Saltonstall. Records show that Lincoln lost this case and the plaintiff won a jury award of $110.45. From the Henry E. Luhrs Collection. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.
