In the Sangamon County Circuit Court case of Wilbourn v. Crenshaw et al., Lincoln files a declaration for his client, Robert Wilbourn Sr., who accuses defendants William E. Crenshaw Sr., William Crenshaw Jr., and Edward D. Crenshaw of shooting and killing at least one of Wilbourn's horses. Wilbourn's horse apparently damaged William Crenshaw Sr.'s fence.
