Notes.

Note from page 343: 1. Marginal note: It was in Menard Co Ills about 1835 — when & where he learned it I am satisfied from what I Know & have heard Herndon.

Note from page 343: 2. The first line of "Mortality" by the Scottish poet William Knox.

Note from page 343: 3. Because Francis B. Carpenter recently had written that AL told him he first learned of the poem named above from a man named Jason Duncan, William H. Herndon wrote to many of his informants about this time seeking information on Duncan.

Note from page 343: 4. The balance of the original letter is missing; the text is supplied from the Springer transcription.
