Lincoln & Herndon participate in eight cases before the Sangamon County Circuit Court. In Jackson v. Brown, while representing the defendant they file a demurrer to the plaintiff's declaration. After hearing both sides argue over the demurrer, the court takes the issue under advisement. In Fithian v. Mobley et al., Lincoln & Herndon dismiss their client's bill to foreclose mortgage against one defendant. Representing the other two defendants, John T. Stuart consents to an agreement in which the court orders his clients to pay Fithian a total of $3,175.20, principal and interest on two mortgages, by March 1, 1850, on penalty of foreclosure. Lincoln writes the court decree to foreclose. Lincoln also writes and signs a joinder to the defendants' plea in Coon v. Lloyd et al. Motions are entered in remaining cases.
