Abraham Lincoln to John M. Bush, 28 July 18461
Friend Bush
Inclosed is your license, certified in due form; and your name having been duly placed on the Roll of attorneys–2 Let me correct a little mistake of yours– You say in your note that you understand one dollars to be the customary charge for my part of the trouble– The one dollar is the customary charge for the clerk's part of the trouble– My charge for such things is nothing at all; and I make this explanation to remove the impression that I would accept a money compensation for the like–
Yours sincerely–A. Lincoln
