The cover note, in T. J. Wise's hand, is misleading. This document represents a partial copy of the A2 Proofs in their first state. They were printed around 21 September 1869. Lewis designates the A2 Proofs proof state 4 (see Lewis).
These proofs have only a few autograph corrections and revisions. They were probably once part of a complete copy that included the material that now survives in the Princeton/Troxell collection's Second Partial Copy, uncorrected, of 33 pages.
