Letter to Messrs. Browning and Bushnell

149

Gentlemen: Your letter is received. I have made the arrangement to use the Hoyt evidence in the other cases.

The new act of Congress provides that all cases begun here shall be tried here and not go to Chicago at all. All our Patent cases were begun here. It also fixes the summer term here in July, instead of June as heretofore.

So no trouble is created in our Patent cases by the new law.

In haste,
Yours as ever,
A. LINCOLN.
