Excerpt from Abraham Lincoln as a Lawyer
Springfield was only a few miles away and there is every reason to believe that Lincoln attended the sessions of Circuit Court there. Then, as he himself says In the days of the Black Hawk War, I fought, bled and came away, but not before becoming acquainted with his future law partner, Major John T. Stuart of'the Springfield Volunteers, whose friendly advice and loan of law books encouraged him to continue the study of the law. The berry-lincoln store fiasco which came next had only two redeem ing features - plenty of leisure for study and his purchase of a set of Blackstone which he found at the bottom of a barrel of odds and, ends he had bought, out of the kindness of his heart, to aid a passerby. That was a red letter day in his life and we have his own word for it that he literally devoured the volumes.
