Notes.

Note from page 574: 1. Marginal note: Send this back to me when you are done with it — Dont forget. WHH
This interview seems to have been sent to Ward Hill Lamon in WHH's letter of February 19, 1870. On February 25, WHH wrote to Lamon: "I sent you some days since more at the request of Jno Armstrong than of myself a short account of what I had to say on Lincoln's house divided against itself speech — should not have sent it for the same reason that I have refused — failed to say more — write more to you — namely I do not wish to be considered a blow — boast — or fool who wishes to be noticed &c. &c." (Lamon Papers, Huntingon Library).
