|Commentary:|| The story in both the magazine and the book is about Lincoln and the owner of the ‘toy shop,’ Joseph Schotz. The use of the name is not consistent. In Schoonover’s charcoal drawing, the store is called ‘ J. Stuntz,’ and in the photograph, the shop is called ‘A. Stuntz.’
For further commentary, see #310 and #325.
