Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes from a letter written by him as transcribed in Life of John H.W. Hawkins by William George Hawkin (E.P. Dutton, 1859), pages 403-404: "Monday morning, September the 28th [1857]; that is my birthday, when, if I should live, I shall be sixty years of age. Drink it [a toast] about six o'clock in the morning, as that was about the hour I came into this world of trial."
