Debates Scrapbook, DIC. Although Lincoln did not provide this debate with the prefatory note that precedes the first and second debates, the same sources provide the text of the speeches---the Chicago Times for Douglas and the Chicago Press and Tribune for Lincoln. As in the first two debates, Lincoln's deletions of cheering and interruptions have not been followed. His corrections and insertions in the margin have been indicated by footnotes. Bracketed passages are in the source unless otherwise noted. Typographical errors not corrected in the scrapbook have been corrected by the editors.
