Brooks writes at the beginning of the document that he is complying with the invitation of "this Hon. body" to deliver a lecture on the topic. This lecture is presumed to be related to Brooks' studies at Phillips Academy or Amherst College. Sidney Brooks lecture on phrenology Walt Whitman galley proof sheets of "Death of Abraham Lincoln" Whitman, Walt, 1819-1892 Three galley proof sheets of Walt Whitmans's prose piece "Death of Abraham Lincoln" with an Arlington Hotel envelope upon which William E. Barton has written a note about these sheets. The sheets do not include the complete piece. Whitman delivered the full lecture on Lincoln in 1879, 1880, and 1881, and it was later published in Whitman's prose collection, "Specimen Days & Collect." The envelope contains the pin that Whitman used to pin the sheets together. It is unclear if the envelope belonged to Whitman or Barton. Walt Whitman galley proof sheets of "Death of Abraham Lincoln"
