Notes.

Note from page 351: 1. Marked Copy and written on the stationery of the Decatur Magnet in a hand other than that of Hanks.

Note from page 351: 2. Probably Henry Sparrow and Lucy Hanks Sparrow, AL's maternal grandmother.

Note from page 351: 3. A memorandum in WHH's hand (HW3745) describes a copy of Robert Gibson's Theory and Practice of Surveying dated 1814 that purports to carry several Lincoln signatures, plus that of Ben Romine, a former Indiana neighbor. This is probably the book Hanks has been asked about.
