Annotation

[1]   Illinois State Register, February 5, 1841. The Sangamo Journal, January 29, 1841, merely mentions this debate, which ensued upon the tabling of John J. Brown's amendment, supported by Lincoln on the preceding day (vide supra). The House Journal does not record the full discussion and omits reference to the first of Lincoln's amendments.
