Springfield, February 8, 1847.
Friend Dummer:
Yours of the 3rd was duly received. I have procured Judge Lockwood's part to be performed and now mail the record to St. Louis as you desired.
I write you merely to relieve you of any anxiety as to the matter having in any way miscarried.
Yours sincerely,
A. Lincoln

The "Friend Dummer" that Lincoln addresses is attorney Henry E. Dummer who was a partner with John T. Stuart beginning in 1832. Stuart brought fledgling attorney Lincoln in his law office after Dummer moved to Beardstown in 1837. Judge Lockwood was Samuel D. Lockwood who served on the Illinois Supreme Court from 1825-1848.
