Notes.

Note from page 637: 1. This document records the substance of a series of WHH interviews on the same date. Above the date, WHH has written: Opinions of Men — file them.

Note from page 637: 2. Marginal note: All these various conversations were noted down by me within 10 minutes after they were made — each in succession — did it before — saw others — and had conversations with them. The replies were watched closely — more closey than anything else. / W. H Herndon.

Note from page 638: 3. Herndon probably intended to write "not."

Note from page 638: 4. Alfred Orendorff, former law partner of WHH.

Note from page 638: 5. Shelby Moore Cullom (1829 — 1914), then senior U.S. senator from Illinois.

Note from page 638: 6. By this WHH apparently meant glossing over the troubling reports of Thomas Lincoln's impotence.
