legal case and case notes
-  Summary: Graves owed Rinehart $120 in rent but failed to pay. Rinehart sued Graves in an action of distress for rent to recover the debt. Graves failed to appear, and the court ruled for Rinehart and awarded $120. The court sold eight hundred bushels of corn, twenty bushels of wheat, and four tons of hay for $193.52 to satisfy the judgment. Lincoln role is unclear, but he wrote the publisher's certificate.
