Notes.

Note from page 63: 1. Though WHH estimates that he first talked to Stuart five days previous to July 21 (see p. 77), the distinctive reference to a Miss Short, about which WHH queries James Short and which Short responds to on July 7, indicates that the interview must have been earlier. Note that G. U. Miles reports that Short received WHH's letter by June 30.

Note from page 63: 2. Marginal note in Springer transcription: (a mistake) this means Stewart.

Note from page 63: 3. Probably refers to AL's unsuccessful courtship of Mary Owens in 1836 — 37. See §56.

Note from page 64: 4. Stuart has confused the battle of Bad Axe, which was fought in Wisconsin at the conclusion of the war, with an Illinois battle, probably Stillman's Defeat.

Note from page 64: 5. Cf. §§377, 409.
