Debates Scrapbook, ORB. Lincoln used the pamphlet reprint (Monaghan 12) in the debates scrapbook (see Speech at Springfield, June 16, 1858, n.1, supra), and made only one correction, as indicated in a footnote. Except for Lincoln's deletion of cheering throughout the speech, which has not been observed, the text follows the debates scrapbook, with important variations in the text of the Illinois State Journal, July 20, 21, 1858, given in the footnotes. Collation of punctuation with the Journal text has also provided a few marks not in the debates scrapbook text.
