Notes.

Note from page 727: 1. For JWW's personal relation to Birch, see §624, note 1. JWW says that Birch met with WHH when the latter came to Greencastle, Indiana, in 1887 to collaborate with JWW on their biography and that "what Birch, who was the embodiment of truthful and conscientious statement, said about Lincoln was verified by Herndon" (Weik, 198). This appears to be excerpted from a statement published after Birch's death in The Outlook, Feb. 11, 1911, reprinted in Rufus Rockwell Wilson, ed., Intimate Memories of Lincoln (Elmira, N.Y.: Primavera Press, 1945), 104-8.

Note from page 728: 2. This is from AL's speech in the last joint debate with Douglas at Alton, October 15, 1858, CW 3:315.
