APPENDIX II

IN this index the editors have listed chronologically writings for which no text has been found, forgeries and spurious or dubious items attributed to Lincoln, certain routine communications issued on Lincoln's authority, and routine endorsements. Although the editors have tried to list all those items which in their opinion would be of service to the student, the list is necessarily selective. Except in particular cases, the following categories of documents have not been listed: nominations, land grants, discharge papers, ships' papers, routine pardon and clemency endorsements, draft orders, approvals, appointments, authorizations, and commissions.

Abbreviations are the same as those used throughout the Complete Works except for an additional symbol NE adopted specifically for this list. The symbol NE indicates that, in so far as the editors have been able to determine, the item is not extant.
