AD, DLC-RTL. The manuscript is apparently the one revised by Lincoln for publication as a campaign pamphlet. The subheadings which appear throughout do not appear in the speech as printed in the Congressional Globe Appendix, pp. 1041-43. Otherwise, except for changes in style and punctuation, the Globe version follows the manuscript fairly closely. Principal variations in wording which appear in the Globe have been inserted in the text within brackets.
