Lincoln writes two documents concerning the Sangamon County Circuit Court case of Wood et al. v. Ross. Defendant Emory C. Ross had failed to pay promissory notes to plaintiffs John Yarrow, Horatio C. Wood, Richard Wood, Josiah Bacon, and James Abbott. Lincoln, as an attorney for the plaintiffs, writes a bill to foreclose on the mortgage that Ross used as collateral to secure the loans. Lincoln signs the bill "Stuart & Lincoln." Lincoln also writes and signs his own affidavit and submits it to the court. Lincoln states in the document that to the best of his "knowledge and belief," Ross no longer resides in Illinois. Bill to Foreclose Mortgage, 3 May 1839, Wood et al. v.
