Annotation

[1]   AD, IH. This printed form shows Lincoln's interlineations within brackets. Probably Lincoln sent an Illinois form to his father-in-law to complete. When it was returned, Lincoln made minor corrections. This land was later sold to pay for the 1856 addition to their home on 8th and Jackson.

[2]   The name ``Todd'' deleted and replaced with ``Lincoln.''

[3]   The name ``Illinois'' deleted and replaced with Kentucky.
