Thank you for asking! Generally speaking, databases and electronic collections held by other libraries are not available through inter-library loan. However, there may be other options you can pursue. For one, if you place an inter-library loan request for a copy of the article, there may be a library that has a print version available. It appears that the UMSL document appears in an online version of the Encyclopedia of Race and Racism, 2013, ISBN 9780028661957, pp. 282 - 284. 

Given the complex history of the Willie Lynch letter/speech, its spread and cultural impact, there are quite a few books and articles that reproduce it and discuss it in part or in full. Omaha Public Library has two titles, The Willie Lynch Letter & The Making of a Slave and The Curse of Willie Lynch, that may be of use to you. The St. Louis Black Pages, where the letter may have been first published, still hosts a transcript. Dr. William Jelani Cobb, author of the article that you cited from the UMSL catalog, discusses the letter in several articles online
