Lincoln writes to Adam Adams and John Bovey: "The court is about to adjourn; and it does not decide our case. . . . It appears to me, however, that the signs are against us. . . . I have entire confidence that the law is with us on the Statute of Limitations, and yet it seems, I can not get the judge to remember that this is a question in the case at all. . . . Be patient. They have not got your land yet." Abraham Lincoln to Adam Adams and John Bovey, 2 August 1852, CW, 2:133-34.
