Note from page 359: 1. This is the latest of the three surviving manuscripts relating to WHH's sole interview with MTL, incorporating the texts of the two earlier manuscripts (Herndon-Weik Collection. Manuscript Division. Library of Congress. Washington, D.C. 3065 — 66 and Herndon-Weik Collection. Manuscript Division. Library of Congress. Washington, D.C. 3067) and some new material. The date refers to the time of the interview, not the composition of this text, which may postdate the last of the Springer transcriptions (Nov. 30, 1866). Illegible material in the original has been supplied in brackets from earlier texts and from the Springer transcription of the earliest version [Herndon-Weik Collection. Manuscript Division. Library of Congress. Washington, D.C. 3065 — 66). The docketing is difficult to read but appears to be: Mrs Lincoln's Evidence Copied. A nearly indecipherable note below this apparently relates to something WHH's law partner Alfred Orendorff told him about MTL in 1874.
