Note on a letter by David Davis, for the pardon of Thomas Patterson by David Davis( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Dehaven entered Patterson's store to buy a hatchet. Patterson refused to give Dehaven more credit until Dehaven had paid his account. Dehaven, who was drunk, left angrily but soon returned and renewed the argument. Dehaven raised a spade to strike Patterson, but Patterson picked up a two-pound scale weight and threw it at Dehaven. The weight hit Dehaven near his left ear, and he died a few days later. The state's attorney indicted Patterson for manslaughter and Patterson retained Lincoln to defend him. At the trial, the jury found Patterson guilty and sentenced him to three years in the Alton Penitentiary. The court denied Lincoln's motion for a new trial. In 1860, Lincopln endorsed a request for pardon and the governor pardoned Patterson. Additional details may be found in: The Law Practice of Abraham Lincoln: Complete Documentary Edition
