Annotation

[1]   Illinois Journal, October 21, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 1854.

[2]   Lincoln later authorized correction of this statement; it was not a condition of the deed. See Lincoln to John L. Scripps, June 16, 1860, and to James O. Putnam, September 13, 1860, infra.

[3]   Lincoln seems to be personifying here; otherwise, omission of ``the'' would not have been consistent in this and succeeding references in this paragraph. Editorials in Illinois newspapers prior to this speech refer to the villain ``Nebraska Bill'' as a person, indicating a common usage during the campaign.

[4]   Charles Phillips, famed British orator, to whose oration The Character of Napoleon. . . . (1817) Lincoln probably refers.
