Ole-

  The site was included because it explained Stephens' recollections of what was said in the meeting on February 3, 1865. According to Stephens, it was the Union side that demanded that the meeting be on a verbal basis only, with no records being kept.

  As far as I know, none of the other participants left a record of their recollections of what was said. So, I see no reason to doubt the veracity of what Stephens recalled being said.

  I assure you, Ole, that the link was not included for the value of the : "sludge." :D
