Notes.

Note from page 388: 1. The marginal note on this document (see p. 389, note 5) refers, in brief outline, to a story Weber related at WHH's request in a letter dated November 5, 1866. The conjectural date given here assumes that Weber wrote out the story soon after WHH outlined it here.

Note from page 389: 2. See §364.

Note from page 389: 3. This incident is almost certainly the one described in the Illinois State Register for November 30, 1839, as having occurred the previous Saturday, November 23.

Note from page 389: 4. Cf. §451.
