      Notes Position: whole page

      This appears to be manuscript version of poem entitled ''Our Union — A National Ode.'' Though this is marked as the second stanza of the poem, it appears as the third stanza in the published version. 

      Manuscript starts on [Page 27] and runs continuously through [Page 33].

      Simms has crossed out the sixth line from the bottom.
