In addition to the draft of this portion which furnishes the text (pp. 1913-15 in the Lincoln Papers), there is a first draft of this portion (pp. 1894-95) with numerous revisions, which in common with section ``2'' seems to be part of the earlier manuscript prepared in February or March for use in Kansas, and here revised for use at Cincinnati.
