Notes.

Note from page 572: 1. On May 18, 1854, AL and John T. Stuart defended nine women in DeWitt Circuit Court who had been indicted on charges of riot for dumping a grocer's supply of liquor after he had refused to close his establishment. The women were tried by a jury and found guilty but were fined only $2.00 each (Earl Schenck Miers et al., eds., Lincoln Day by Day: A Chronology, 1809 — 1865, 3 vols. [Washington, D.C., 1960]).

Note from page 573: 2. William H. Herndon's note below the signature: Herndon says, Judge David Davis presided — Archer Herndon's wife — his mother — was one of the defendants.
