Illinois State Journal, October 7, 1859. On October 6 the Journal announced that Lincoln had corrected his Cincinnati speech and that it would appear the next day. Presumably Lincoln used the text of the Cincinnati Gazette, September 19, 1859, since the Journal follows the Gazette closely except for the extensive revisions. There are, however, a number of errors of omission in the Journal which have been corrected with reference to the Gazette, and all typographical errors have been corrected by the editors. Brackets are in the source unless otherwise noted.
