Created/Published n. d. Notes Appears to be in Lincoln's hand. Summary: Harkness gave Isaiah Roberts three promissory notes in 1834 totaling $1,080. Isaiah assigned the notes to Henry Roberts, who sued Harkness in the Peoria County Circuit Court after Harkness failed to pay. Harkness argued that Roberts for $1,440 sold him an idea for an invention to manufacture bricks. Harkness refused to pay because he discovered that the invention was useless, which broke the consideration of the promissory notes. The court granted a change of venue to Tazewell County Circuit Court, and Harkness retained Lincoln. The first jury failed to reach a verdict, but a second jury found for Harkness. Roberts motioned for a new trial, but the court overruled the motion. lprbscsm scsm1466 http://hdl.loc.gov/loc.rbc/lprbscsm.scsm1466 http://hdl.loc.gov/loc.rbc/lprbscsm.scsm1466
Created/Published January 23, 1836 Notes Appears to be in Lincoln's hand. Summary: Kellogg and Lewis Crain dissolved their business partnership, but Crain owed Kellogg $16,000 to pay off the business's debts. Crain died before paying, and Kellogg sued James Crain, who served as surety for Lewis Crain, in an action of debt for $16,000. The court granted a change of venue to Peoria County, but the court there remanded the case back to Tazewell County. Kellogg retained Lincoln but failed to appear, and the court dismissed the case. Kellogg motioned to reinstate the case because he was ill and could not attend court. The court set aside the dismissal and ruled for Kellogg for $16,000. ` lprbscsm scsm1374 http://hdl.loc.gov/loc.rbc/lprbscsm.scsm1374 http://hdl.loc.gov/loc.rbc/lprbscsm.scsm1374
