Notes.

Note from page 147: 1. A photostat of the original manuscript of this letter is in the files of the Abraham Lincoln Association, ISHL, but the location of the original is unknown. The Springer transcription given here appears to differ slightly from the original in accidentals and word order but not in substance. For a facsimile of the original, see Lair, 6 — 7.

Note from page 148: 2. "The Romish Lady,"a blatantly anti — Roman Catholic narrative, depicts a woman burned at the stake by the Church for secretly reading the Bible and renouncing the worship of idols. See Lair, 9.

Note from page 148: 3. See p. 105, note 6.
