Note from page 326: 3. This refers to a fragment in WHH's hand, presumably clipped by MTL from a note sent by WHH to Robert T. Lincoln: Robt — I want to give a sketch — a short life of your mother in my biography up to her marriage to your father — or say up to 1846 — or 1858 — . I wish to do her justice fully — so that the world will understand things better. You understand me. Will she see me. (Herndon-Weik Collection. Manuscript Division. Library of Congress. Washington, D.C. 3774)
