Framed Abraham Lincoln Letter. Lincoln, one page, 7.75 x 9.75. Written from Springfield, Illinois, a letter to Kersey H. Fell, in full: I know not that I shall be at Bloomington soon-I shall be here till Tuesday next; and will be glad to see you. This letter heralds from Lincoln’s legal heyday; in 1852, he had recoiled from the Whig Party, seeking solace as a’prairie law¬≠yer. From 1851 through 1860 he would try 175 cases before the Illinois Supreme Court. It was also during this time that he gained the confidence of a substantial client-the Illinois Central Railroad. In the McLean County Circuit Court, November 1858, Lincoln represented plain- tiffs Orville H. Browning and Nehemiah Bushnell, both prominent Illinois lawyers and railroad businessmen, against defendants Franklin Price and Kersey Fell, the latter serving as his own attorney; the plaintiffs were suing Price and Fell for their failure to pay on a note. Interestingly, Fell’s brother, Jesse W. Fell, also a notable lawyer, was a close friend of Lincoln who urged him to challenge Stephen A. Douglas to their famous series of debates and, at the time of this letter, persuaded Lincoln to pen a brief autobiographical sketch that helped get him elected president the following year.
