Notes.

Note from page 471: 1. William M. Holland, The Life and Political Opinions of Martin Van Buren, Vice President of the United States (Hartford, 1835).

Note from page 471: 2. William Fithian was a Vermillion County Whig politician. Van Buren's letter reportedly acknowledged that Holland's book "contains as far as it goes a substantially correct history of my political course." See Sangamo Journal, Sept. 18, 1840.

Note from page 471: 3. This interpolation by WHH probably refers to the story of Douglas slinging the book, rather than what follows.
