In the U.S. Circuit Court, Lincoln & Herndon represent plaintiff Hoel K. Lawrence, a resident of Wisconsin, in the case of Lawrence v. Coler. In response to an earlier assertion by defendant William N. Coler, Lincoln & Herndon acknowledge that they have incorrectly stated the plaintiff's first name in the declaration and in the praecipe they filed with the Court on December 18, 1857. Lincoln & Herndon ask the Court's permission to "amend the Declaration and Writ in this cause," and Judge Samuel H. Treat grants their request. Lawrence is suing Coler to receive $2,900 for a bill of exchange that Coler gave to him. Lawrence also seeks $2,000 in damages. Complete Record, 10 February 1858, Lawrence v.
