    Abraham Lincoln. Autograph Document Signed "Brown, Baker & Lincoln p.d." No place or date (Vermilion Co., Ill.; docketed May 184[1]), one page, oblong octavo. In John M. Wilson vs Samuel Frazier, the defendant states he is "not [gu]ilty in manner and form as the…plaintiff…hat[h a]lleged…" This suit against Frazier, the county sheriff, was dismissed on Oct. 17, 1842 when Lincoln reported to the court that Wilson was dead; Lincoln was however mistaken, and the case was reinstated the next day because of his error. Trimming at left side and some marginal chips take a letter or two in each line (bracketed in quotation). Verso has reinforced folds and considerable marginal darkening. From the Henry E. Luhrs Collection. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
