Notes.

Note from page 357: 1. This appears to be the earliest version of WHH's notes on his only interview with MTL, possibly set down at the time. Unlike the following two items, a copy of this text appears in the Springer transcriptions, which were made before December 1, 1866. This suggests that the next two items may have been written later.

Note from page 357: 2. MTL was born in 1818.

Note from page 357: 3. Victorie Charlotte Leclere Mentelle operated a boarding school in Lexington.

Note from page 357: 4. Dr. John Ward conducted a coeducational school in Lexington.

Note from page 357: 5. MTL's older sister, Frances Todd, who preceded MTL to Springfield and married Dr. William S. Wallace.

Note from page 357: 6. See §213.
