    Abraham Lincoln. Autograph Document Signed twice "Logan & Lincoln p.q." Christian Co., Ill., June 1842, about one page in total, penned on both sides of a folio sheet. A complaint by Jacob Londy, who alleges that John Cagle and Robert Richardson in November 1841 took from him "fourteen plaines [sic], one brace and bits…three trying squares, one dozen firmer chizzels [sic], three saws, and several other small tools, and the box in which said tools were contained", valued at eighty dollars, and for which he claims damages of $150. On the verso Lincoln asks the court clerk to "issue a writ of replevin…for the property described…" Defendant Cagle was apparently a bad seed: seven years later Lincoln was hired to sue him for fathering an illegitimate child. From the Henry E. Luhrs Collection. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.
