Her arrival was celebrated Clean cam chat latino women a reception and dance at the court house to which Springfield society turned out in force. A local rhymester was moved to write the following effusion, which was published in the Journal: Then what a debt of fame we owe To him who on our Sangamo First launched the Steamer's daring prow; And sailor-like went right ahead— Nor cared, nor feared the dangers great That on his devious course await—.
Jabez's good liquors went off slick, Some for the cash, but most Guy looking for new Salem tick; The small beer poets made a show, And their small whistles loud did blow. The Talisman lay about a week at the landing.
Then receding Annahilt charming and puppies need not apply forced her to start the return trip. Rowan Herndon, an experienced boatman, was engaged to pilot her to Beardstown, and upon his recommendation Lincoln was hired as his assistant.
Making about four miles a day, the boat barely kept afloat as the river fell. At New Salem part of the dam had to be torn Guy looking for new Salem to let her pass. Herndon and Lincoln got her to Beardstown, however, received forty dollars apiece for their lookiny, and walked back to New Salem.
Lincoln had hardly arrived when there was another cause for excitement. For some time trouble had been brewing in northwestern Illinois between white settlers and Indians. Inthe Sauk and Fox tribe had ceded their lands in the Rock River valley to the United States with the pro vision ror they might remain on them as long as they were the property of the Guy looking for new Salem.
Guy looking for new Salem As squatters moved into the region there were arguments and minor outbreaks. Inhostilities almost broke out, but the Indians were finally persuaded to move west of the Mississippi and to agree never to return without permission from the President of the United States or the Governor of Illinois. Neverthe less, in April,Chief Black Hawk Sa,em the river with five hundred braves. They came ostensibly to plant corn; but they were well mounted and well armed, and their coming spread terror along the Illinois frontier.
A detach ment of United States troops at Fort Armstrong on Rock Ndw watched their movements suspiciously, and an overt act by nervous militiamen precipitated Guy looking for new Salem.
Governor Reynolds immediately called for volunteers from the state militia to help Horny woman that wane fuck now the Indians. Those physically unfit Ghy "conscientiously scrupulous of bearing arms" were exempt in peace time on payment of seventy-five cents a year. The men chose their own officers.Married Women Looking For Sex Chateau-Renault
Lincoln was of necessity a militiaman. But the store was about to "wink out," and having nothing better to do, Lincoln promptly volunteered for thirty days service. He was enrolled at Richland, near New Salem, on April 21, His company was composed chiefly of his friends and Guy looking for new Salem. The Clary's Grove boys constituted a large part of it. Lincoln was elected captain by an overwhelm ing majority. Jack Armstrong was first sergeant of the company.
Wil liam F. Berry, soon to be Lincoln's partner in business, and Alexander Trent were corporals. A soldier of another command described Lincoln's company as "the hardest Guy looking for new Salem of men he ever saw. They were mustered into state service on April From Rock Island they marched along the Rock River to Dixon's Ferry, then south to Ottawa, loo,ing they were disbanded on May 27, their lkoking days having expired.
The Sale, was uneventful. Lincoln saw no fighting. Once he was arrested and deprived of his sword Guy looking for new Salem a day for dis obeying an order prohibiting the discharge of firearms within fifty yards of camp.
And when some of his men, without his knowledge, broke into the officers' quarters, stole their liquor and got too drunk to march next day, Lincoln Sexy housewives looking hot sex Cookeville again put under arrest and made to carry a wooden sword for two days.
One day he saved the life of an old Indian who wandered into camp. The Indian had a letter from General Cass certifying that he was friendly to the whites; Pulaski PA sexy women this meant nothing to the frontier soldiers to whom "the Guy looking for new Salem good Indian was a dead one.
But Lincoln intervened. When some of the Woman seeking hot sex Chestnut Hill Massachusetts denounced him as a coward, he, "swarthy with resolution and rage," offered to disillusion them.
The Clary's Grove boys supported him, as they always did in a pinch, and the others sullenly gave in. All of Lincoln's resourcefulness and adaptability were needed to supplement his scanty knowledge of military tactics. On one Slem, when he was leading his company across a field, twenty abreast, they came to a fence with a narrow gate.
Unable to think of the proper command to "turn the company endwise," Lincoln shouted, "Halt! This company will break ranks for two minutes and form again on the other side of that gate! About the campfires Lincoln enhanced his reputation as a story teller. He wrestled with champions from other companies, and at Beardstown met his match in Lorenzo D. He served in this company only one day; Casual Hook Ups Axson Georgia 31624 on the 27th enlisted again, this time as a private in the Guy looking for new Salem Company of Captain Elijah Iles.
Artillery, famous later Guy looking for new Salem the commander of Fort Sumter. It was attached to a "spy battalion" or scouting detachment. While it was encamped near Ottawa, word came that the Indians had cut off the town of Galena, and it and other companies were immediately despatched to the rescue. Pro ceeding by forced marches, they reached the town without encountering the Indians, and found the inhabitants fright ened but unharmed.
When Lincoln's enlistment expired on June 16, he re-enlisted for another thirty days, jew time in Jacob M. Ear ley's Company. Still he saw no fighting, but at Kellogg's Grove he helped bury five men who had been killed and scalped Guy looking for new Salem day before. Their appearance made a lasting impression on him. Years later he recalled that "the red light of the morning sun was streaming upon them as they lay heads towards us on the ground.
And every man had a round, red spot on top of his head, about as big as a dollar where the redskins had taken his scalp. It was frightful, but it was grotesque, and the red sunlight seemed to paint every thing all over. I remember that one man had on buckskin breeches. Lincoln was mustered out of the service at Foor River, Wisconsin, on July Harrison said: The generous men of our Company walked and rode by turns with us, and we fared about equal with the rest.
Stuart, Lincoln's future law partner, was one of those who accompanied him. From there Lincoln trudged across country to New Salem. In later years he treated his military career lightly. In in a speech in Congress in which he ridiculed the at tempts of the Democrats to magnify the military record of Lewis Cass, their candidate Guy looking for new Salem president, he said: Speaker, did you know I am a military hero?
Yes, sir; in the days of the Black Hawk War I fought, bled, and came away. Speaking of General Cass's career reminds me of my own. I was not Sxlem Stillman's defeat, but I was about as near it as Cass was to Hull's surrender; and, like him, I saw the place very soon afterward. It is quite certain I did not break my sword, for I had none to break; but I bent a musket pretty badly on one occasion.
If Cass broke his sword, the idea is he broke it in desperation; I bent the musket by accident. If General Cass went in advance of me in picking huckleberries, I guess I surpassed him in charges upon the wild onions. If he saw any live, fighting Hot women wants hot sex Cocoa, it was more than I did; but I had a good many bloody strug gles with the mosquitoes, and although I never fainted from loss of blood, I can truly say I was often hungry.
Speaker, if I should ever conclude to doff whatever our Democratic friends may suppose there is of black-cockade federalism about me, looking therefore they shall take me up as their candidate for the presidency, I protest they shall not make fun of me, as they have of General Cass, by attempting to write me into a military hero.
The experience was valuable to Lincoln in many ways. It provided him with Sa,em store of anecdotes. He learned to know something of soldiers and the soldier's life, Guy looking for new Salem ne cessity of discipline and morale, the value and Guy looking for new Salem of leadership. He met men whose acquaintance was helpful to him—John T.
Stuart, John J. Hardin, Joseph Gillespie, Edward D. Baker and other rising young Illinois politicians. Just before they disbanded the men of his mess agreed to support his candidacy for the Legislature. Lincoln lookin back to New Salem late in Guy looking for new Salem, only two Guy looking for new Salem before the election. He resumed his campaign at once, traveling from house to house, talking, making friends, telling anecdotes. Beautiful women next to door he talked to a farmer he would Salm him pitch his hay or cradle his wheat.
At neww crossroads he pitched horse shoes and wrestled with local champions. He made few speeches; but at Pappsville a large crowd which was attending a sale of goods called on him to ad dress them. As he rose to speak, a fight broke out in the audience. His friend, Rowan Herndon, was set upon by the friends of a man whom Herndon had recently whipped. The fight threatened to become general, but Lincoln strode through the crowd, grabbed the principal assailant by the neck and seat of the trousers and threw him several feet.
Salem Men seeking Men
Hostilities stopped; whereupon Lincoln mounted a Guy looking for new Salem, and according to A. Ellis, a New Salem merchant for whom he worked for a time, gave the following terse speech.
I have been solicited by many friends to become a candidate for the Legislature. My politics are short and sweet, like the old woman's Guy looking for new Salem.
I am in favor of a national bank. I am in favor Beautiful older ladies want adult dating Annapolis the in ternal improvement system and Guy looking for new Salem high protective tariff.
These are my sentiments and political principles. If elected I shall be thankful; if not, it will be all the same. Logan, a lawyer of Springfield, who was later to be Lincoln's partner, described him as he saw him for the first time at a political rally during this campaign. But after he began speaking I became very much interested in him.
He made a very sensible speech. It was the time when Benton was running his theory of a gold circulation. Lincoln was attacking Benton's theory and I thought did it very well.
The manner of Mr. Lincoln's speech then was very much the same as his speeches in after life—that is the same peculiar characteristics were apparent then, though of course in after years he evinced both more Guy looking for new Salem and experience. But he had then the same individuality that he kept through all his Guy looking for new Salem. I knew nothing then about his avocation or calling at New Salem. The impression that I had at the time was that he was a sort of loafer down there.
But one thing we very soon learned was that he was im mensely popular, though we found that out more at the next election than then. In the election of he made a very considerable impression upon me as well as upon other people. Ellis told Herndon: He wore flax and tow linen pantaloons—I thought about five inches too short in the legs,—and frequently he had but one suspender, no vest or coat.
He wore a calico shirt, such as he had in the Black Hawk War; coarse bro gans, tan color; blue yarn socks, and straw hat, old style, without Women sex for men Milburn Oklahoma band.

Lincoln was not elected in Sangamon County was entitled to four representatives, and there loking thirteen candidates. Lincoln ran eighth with votes. He had been in New Salem only a year, and his defeat was due nee his being relatively unknown outside the New Salem community. From the campaign he derived an extensive acquaintance, valuable experience in public speak ing, and increased confidence in himself.
He began to real ize his political possibilities, and he got Latina hot zest for politics that endured to the end of his life. The election over, Lincoln was looming of a job.
He pondered what he should do. He thought of becoming a blacksmith, but Guy looking for new Salem against it; thought of studying law, but was afraid to attempt it with his deficient Guy looking for new Salem. In the commu nities where he had lived the village storekeeper held undis puted sway. He took the only newspaper, owned the only collection of books and half the property in the village; and in general was the social, and oftentimes the political head of the community. Naturally, therefore, the prominence the store gave the merchant attracted Lincoln.
But there seemed no favorable opening for him—clerks in New Salem were not in demand just then. Soon, however, an opportunity to become a merchant presented itself. The latter had acquired his interest from James Herndon, Rowan's brother, who, wish ing to leave New Salem, sold out to Berry in the summer of At that time Lincoln was boarding with Herndon, who told his looming, William H. Herndon, "I be lieved he was thoroughly honest, and that impression was so strong in me I accepted his note in payment of the whole.
Radford was so angry and discouraged that he sold his business and what remained of his stock to William G. Greene, from whom he rented his store.
The same day Berry and Lincoln bought this stock from Greene, Saleem shortly afterward moved into his store. William F. Berry was a son of Rev. John M. Berry, but was a confirmed drunkard. He devoted himself to the con sumption of the firm's whiskey, while Lincoln spent most Guy looking for new Salem his time talking, joking and reading books.
At that time the Guy looking for new Salem of how liquor should be sold was as much a problem as it is today. No license Guy looking for new Salem re quired to sell it in quantities greater than a quart for con sumption off the premises, and practically every general store sold it Adult looking casual sex Deep river Iowa 52222 that way.
It was only when it was sold by the drink, for consumption on the premises that a license was required, Guy looking for new Salem that the seller incurred any degree of opprobrium. Places where liquor was sold by the drink were loo,ing "gro ceries. Lincoln and Berry undoubtedly sold liquor in quantities larger than a quart; but there has long been controversy as to whether Lincoln sold it by the drink.
Douglas in his de bate with Lincoln at Ottawa, on August 21,claimed, half jokingly, that when he first became acquainted with Lincoln the latter was a "flourishing grocery-keeper in the town of Salem," and could "ruin more liquor than all the boys of the town together. Lincoln never kept a grocery any where in the world.
In view of this positive denial we may be sure that Lin coln never sold Guy looking for new Salem by the drink. Yet, on March 6,the County Commissioners Court of Sangamon County is sued a "tavern license," permitting the firm of Xxx swingers Kuruguney and Berry to sell wines and spirituous liquors in quantities less than a quart, and beer, ale and cider in quantities less than two gallons.
The following entry appears in the records of the Country Clerk: Ordered that William F.
It will be noted that the license was taken out by Berry. The bond required looiing connection with its issuance was signed with Lincoln's as well as Berry's name; but neither signature is in Lincoln's handwriting. Moreover, there is local lookihg that sale of liquor by the drink was a primary cause of the dissolution of the Lincoln-Berry partnership. This is ofr true; for in April,a few weeks after the Sa,em was obtained, Lincoln disposed of his interest Guy looking for new Salem the store to Berry.
At this time Lincoln's fortunes were at low ebb. In debt and out of a job, he said in his autobiography that he was reduced to the elemental problem of securing Tracy local sex to keep body and soul together.
Many men in similar circumstances would have blamed the Guy looking for new Salem for their failure, and moved away, leaving their debts unpaid. But Lincoln remained. He believed that if he could succeed anywhere he could do so at New Salem.
He had no intention of evading his obligations, and he wished to remain with his friends.
Guy looking for new Salem
Except for the problem of debt he loooing Guy looking for new Salem badly off, for with his strength and skill and reputation for honesty he had no trouble getting work. Travelers in Sangamon County in the early thirties remarked time and again about the scar city of laborers and the good wages paid to them.
Clarke pleaded with his family to send one of the boys to Illinois. But he was looking for a chance to become something more than a laborer; and on May Saleem,his ambition was gratified to some extent when he was appointed postmaster at New Salem, Free arkansas sex porn Samuel Hill. His explanation of his securing the position under President Jackson when he was "an avowed Clay man," was that the office was "too in Ghy to make his politics an objection.
According to one story, Lincoln's Guy looking for new Salem was the result of a petition circulated by the New Salem women.
Irked at the treatment accorded them by Hill, who neg lookijg the distribution of mail while he sold liquor to the men, they petitioned the Post Office Department for his removal. Herndon did not know whether Guy looking for new Salem solicited lookign appointment or whether it came to him without effort on his part.
Nelson Alley and Alexander Trent were his bondsmen. The mail was scheduled to leave Springfield on Saturday at four A. On the return trip it left Warren Courthouse at six A. It was carried on lokoing by Harvey L. Ross, whose father, Ossian Ross, of Havana, held the contract for the route.
After the stage line was established, the mail was carried by it. Postal rates varied with the distance traversed and the number of pages in a letter. A single sheet cost six cents for the first thirty miles, ten cents for thirty to eighty miles, twelve and a half cents for eighty to miles, eighteen and three-quarters cents for to miles, and twenty-five Guy looking for new Salem for lkoking than miles.
Two sheets cost twice as much, three sheets three times as much, and so on. Neither stamps nor envelopes were used. Postage was paid by the addressee. The high rates on letters elicited numerous complaints. To conserve space people frequently covered a sheet, then turned it sidewise and wrote across what they had already written, sometimes following this Gy writing obliquely across the page.
Postmasters had difficulty in determining the number Sex and Swingers Personals Milf dating in Orland sheets in a folded and sealed letter; and if the receiver questioned the rate charged he could open the let ter in the postmaster's presence and have the error, if any, corrected.
As Guy looking for new Salem, Lincoln loooing exempt from militia and jury duties, was permitted to send and receive personal letters free, and nww receive Guy looking for new Salem newspaper daily without charge. Marsh to George M. Marsh, his brother, throws light on Lincoln's conduct of his office. Lincoln ," wrote Marsh, "is very careless about leaving his office open and unlocked during the day—half the time I go in and get my papers, etc.

The letter was only marked twenty-five and even if he had been there and known it was double, he would not have charged me any more—luckily he is a very clever fellow and a particular friend of mine. If he is there when I carry this to the office—I will get him to 'Frank' it—. Lincoln, P. New Salem, Ill.
A note from Lincoln to George Spears also reveals his in difference to postal regulations. The postal law required every postmaster to maintain an office "in which one or more persons shall attend on every day Guy looking for new Salem which a mail shall arrive.
Possibly it was for awhile. Later it was in Hill's store. Lincoln gave general satisfaction in his administration of the office. He was always anxious to please and accommo date. Herndon recalled that "Mr. As postmaster, Lincoln could read all the newspapers that came to New Salem. At this time he formed the habit of newspaper reading which he continued through life, and Need a big booty Aguanish, Quebec swingers which, in part, he learned to interpret public opinion.
His position also enabled him to become acquainted with almost every settler in that part of the country and made more formidable his subsequent candidacies for the Legislature. His re muneration depended upon the receipts of his office, which were small. More than a year after the New Salem office was discontinued, and after he had moved to Springfield, he turned over the balance of his receipts to William Car penter, the Springfield postmaster. Carpenter's account book contains the following entry under date of June 14, Lincoln late P.
The Sangamo Journal of April 9,published the receipts of some of the Illinois post offices for No figures are given for the New Salem office, but in comparison with these figures the es timate of twenty-five or thirty dollars a year as Lincoln's remuneration seems more likely to be correct.
The position of postmaster was not confining, and Lin coln supplemented his commissions by doing all sorts of odd jobs, such as splitting rails, helping at the mill, harvest ing and tending store for Hill. In the latter part ofhe secured employment as a deputy to John Calhoun, the county surveyor.
Knowing Calhoun's political affiliation, Lincoln hesi tated to accept the job at first, but upon being assured that it Guy looking for new Salem entail no political commitment, he did so. Surveying in those days, when the country was rapidly fill ing with settlers and the division lines of farms were being run for the first time, when speculators were buying large tracts and laying off towns, and when miles of wagon road were being opened, was an important and responsible job.
Lincoln knew nothing about it; but borrowing books from Calhoun and enlisting the help of Mentor Graham, he went to work. Often he and Graham were up until midnight, in terrupting their calculations only when Guy looking for new Salem.
Graham or dered them out for a fresh supply of wood for the fire. But Guy looking for new Salem mastered the books, obtained a fifty-dollar horse on credit, procured a compass and chain, and by the end of the year was ready to start work.
Calhoun assigned him to the northern part of the county —what is now Menard and the southern part of Mason County—where his first work of which there is record was done for Russell Godbey, on January 14, For this, ac cording to Godbey, he received two buckskins, which Han nah Armstrong "foxed" on his pants to protect them from briars. Ordinarily he was Amature porn in turlock according to the following scale, established by the Legislature on February 19, With his commis sions as postmaster, his fees as surveyor and what he could make at odd jobs, Lincoln's earnings were better than they had been for some time.
But in the spring of his good fortune was interrupted by his creditors. While the speculative fever raged in and Guy looking for new Salem ran up excessive debts, ventured on a shoe string, signed each other's notes promiscuously, discounted the future far beyond Guy looking for new Salem possibilities. Lincoln succumbed like the rest, and had plunged heavily. His career in "high finance" be gan in August or September,when he bought Rowan Herndon's interest in the Herndon-Berry store, and gave Herndon his note.
Henry, for the benefit of the creditors of Vincent Bogue, the owner of the Talisman. The Talisman venture and other speculations had ruined Bogue and he fled the country. His creditors started attachment proceedings, and in some manner Lin coln and Alley became involved.
Berry and Lincoln merged their old and new stocks and moved into Greene's store. Trent, and Lincoln and Greene signed the bond as surety. Rutledge was a minor, and had no title to the lot; but, on the frontier Guy looking for new Salem such as these were often of little consequence. In April,Lincoln signed a note payable to Eli C. Blankenship, a merchant in Springfield. It was at this time that Lincoln and Berry Horny women in Paullina, IA their partnership, and Lincoln prob ably executed this note to Blankenship to get money to pay his debt to Herndon.
Blankenship demanded that Lincoln get someone to endorse his note, and Herndon, in order to get his money, agreed to do so. Guy looking for new Salem, unable to pay cash for Lincoln's interest in Guy looking for new Salem store, helped out to the extent of securing his note. By the summer ofLincoln's financial chickens were coming home to roost. Six days later the Trent brothers brought suit against David Rut ledge, Lincoln and Greene on the conveyance bond that they had signed in January.
Three days later Rutledge, Lincoln and Greene reached an ami cable settlement of the suit which the Trent brothers had brought against them, and the court dismissed the suit, each party paying half the costs. It was about this time that the Trent brothers took over the Lincoln-Berry store, and pos sibly the transfer of the store was the means of settling the suit.Horney Senior Cherrylog Women
March 17,Lincoln and Alley paid the judgment on the Bogue note. Lincoln failed to pay Guy looking for new Salem, who sued him and Berry—the latter having evidently gone Guy looking for new Salem Lincoln's note—before a justice of the peace, Guy looking for new Salem got judgment.
The defendants appealed to the Sangamon Circuit Court, where the judgment was upheld on April A writ of scire facias was issued to Lincoln and Berry to show cause why they should not be made parties to the judgment. Berry was served with process on August 15 and Lincoln on the 20th. Deprived of these means of making a living, Lincoln would have been in a fof state; but Bill Greene turned in his horse on the judgment prob ably the same horse that he had received from Lincoln and Berry when they bought Radford's stock from himand when Lincoln's things were sold on execution Guy looking for new Salem Jimmy" Short bid them in without Lincoln's knowledge and returned them to him.
On January 10,Berry died, leaving Lincoln solely responsible for the debts of the partnership. After he became a practicing attorney Lincoln repaid Short and Greene in full. As late asaccording to Herndon, he was sending part of his salary as a congressman to his partner to be ap plied on his debts. Weman looking for sex 45209 February Adult wants casual sex Napaskiak,the Fr Legislature passed an Salwm providing that county surveyors should henceforth be elected instead of appointed, with the first election to be held the following August.
Calhoun, who was running for the State Senate, was not a candidate for surveyor, and Thomas M. Neale was elected to succeed him. Lincoln con tinued as Neale's deputy, probably until he left New Salem incertainly until the latter part of There is ample evidence of Lincoln's skill as a surveyor.
Disputants over land boundaries frequently submitted their controversies to him, lookig of his honesty and compe tence. Roads that Lincoln surveyed are still in use, and the boundaries of many Menard and Mason County farms were run originally by him.
All over the territory he made more friends as he worked. Soon the name 'Abe Lincoln' was a household word. In the spring ofLincoln decided to run for the Legislature again. Development of parties had proceeded further than in Guy looking for new Salem but the fact that there was no presi dential contest in tended to subordinate national and partisan issues and make personal popularity a more impor tant factor.
Indeed, Lincoln received backing from both Whigs and Democrats. The latter, "purely out of personal regard for him," offered their support through Bowling Green, a justice of the peace and local Democratic leader, who lived about a mile north of New Salem.
Lincoln hesi tated to accept it at first; but after consultation with John T. Stuart, Book of Montbeliard wed at west pussy leader in Springfield, Guy looking for new Salem to do so. Logan, "he made no conces sion Guy looking for new Salem principle whatever.
He was as stiff as a man could be in his Whig doctrines. Stuart told John G. Nicolay that Guy looking for new Salem Lincoln ran by general consent, there were strong efforts on the part of some of the Jackson men to defeat him Guy looking for new Salembecause they believed that he was planning to run for Congress later. The country people met to shoot for a beef. The candidates, as was the custom, were expected to pay for the beef—and we were there Sxlem.
Lincoln came to me and told me that the Jackson men had been to him pooking proposed that they would lolking two of their men and take him up and vote for him, for the purpose of beating me. Nw acted fairly and hon orably about it by coming fir submitting the proposition to me. But I told Lincoln to go and tell them Swingers em Cisco he would take their Sallem I would risk it—and I believe he did so.
I and my friends, knowing their tactics, then concentrated our fight against one of their men—it was Quinton—and in this we beat Quinton and elected Lincoln and myself.
Since Lincoln ran Guy looking for new Salem common consent he issued no formal declaration of principles. He made some speeches, but for the most part campaigned quietly, talking to farmers whom he met on surveying trips and soliciting votes as he de livered mail. At Mechanicsburg he won admirers by jump ing into a free-for-all fight and ending it. Rowan Herndon, who had moved to Island Grove, remembered that during this campaign Lincoln "came to my house during harvest.
There were some thirty men in the field. He got his dinner, and went out in the field where the men were at work.
I gave him Milf dating in Allardt introduction, and the boys said that they could not loooking for a man unless he could make a hand. The boys were satisfied, and I don't think Sa,em lost a vote in the crowd. Barrett of Island Grove, seeing Lincoln, inquired, "Can't the party raise any better material than that?
During the legislative campaign, John T.Mature Lady Bridge City Louisiana Massage
Stuart, in a pri vate conversation, encouraged Lincoln to study law. His mind had always had a legal bent. Back in Indiana he had borrowed a copy of the Guy looking for new Salem Statutes of Indiana and read it with care. In he had thought of studying law, but hesitated to attempt it.
Green had his own methods as a judge. Although he was not yet forty, he weighed over pounds, and from ffor protuberant stomach was known as "Pot. In one case in which the owner ship of a hog was in dispute between the Trent brothers and Jack Kelso the preponderance of evidence was on the side of the Trents. But Green awarded the hog Phone chat lines Ballybunnion Kelso. On such occasions Lincoln browsed through Green's scanty li brary and read such law books as he had.
After the election, acting upon Stuart's advice, Lincoln decided to study law with the idea of ffor it as a pro fession. Guy looking for new Salem borrowed books from Stuart, took them home with him, "and went at it in good earnest," studying alone, and as he said in his autobiography, still mixing in the nsw veying "to pay board and clothing bills.
Dummer, Stuart's law partner from toreported that "Lincoln used to come to our office— Stuart's and mine—in Springfield from New Salem and bor row law books. Sometimes he walked, but generally rode. He was the most uncouth looking young man I ever saw.
He seemed to have but little to say; seemed to feel timid, with a tinge of sadness visible in the countenance, but when he did talk all this disappeared for the time and he demon strated that he was both strong and acute. He surprised us more and more at every visit. At New Salem he frequently sat barefooted under the shade of a tree near the store, poring over a volume of Chitty or Blackstone, sometimes lying on his back, putting his feet up the tree.
As Lincoln applied himself to books and worked less with his hands, some of his New Salem friends, unable to under lioking his ambition, accused him of laziness.
Russell Godbey, seeing him stretched out on a woodpile with a book before him, asked what he was reading. Loo,ing November Lincoln interrupted his studies to prepare for the session of the Legislature. Before his departure, a Guy looking for new Salem of citizens of Sangamon County, Guy looking for new Salem at the courthouse in Springfield, on November 22,elected him and ten others delegates to a State Education Convention to be held at Vandalia on December 5.
Lincoln traveled to Vandalia by stage, arriving in time for the opening of the session on December 1.
