Note from page 709: 1. JWW wrote in The Real Lincoln: "I knew General Mather well, and when I was in Springfield often heard him relate the incidents of his trip to Washington [in 1861]" (1922:304). The account given there (304-6) conveys the same anecdote but in entirely different words. As no original has been found, the text given here is from H&W (1889) as being closer to the time of JWW's interviews with Mather in the 1880s.
