Notes.

Note from page 4: 1. For Lincoln's apostrophe on the Declaration of Independence, as printed in White's paper, the Press and Tribune, see CW 2:545-47. This account suggests that the apostrophe was delivered in Lewistown on August 17, 1858, rather than at Beardstown on August 12, as White indicates, and is signed "G.P."

Note from page 5: 2. Methodist bishop who delivered the eulogy when Lincoln was buried at Springfield on May 4, 1865. Simpson quoted from the peroration of Lincoln's December 1839 speech on the subtreasury (CW 1:159-79) but mistakenly attributed it to another context in 1859, which is why White did not recognize it.
