2On April 14, 1841, Lincoln and John T. Stuart dissolved their partnership. Lincoln, who had already begun taking cases in partnership with Stephen T. Logan earlier in the spring, formally became Logan’s junior partner. In 1839, Daniel Stafford, Jr. had retained Stuart & Lincoln to represent him in a case in the Sangamon County Circuit Court; in March 1841 Logan & Lincoln took over the case. The money due to Stout, Ingoldsby & Co. may have been related to two legal cases in 1837, wherein the company sued two central Illinois corporations to recover debts.
