1. I really cherish that picture of me and my family.
2. I really cherish that picture of myself and my family.

a) Should I use "myself" or "me"?
b) Shouldn't it be "my family and me/myself" instead?

Thanks.

1. A few days later, we had to leave Japan, which was the saddest part.
2. After a few days, we had to leave Japan, which was the saddest part.

a) Is the sentence OK?
b) In writing a composition, as it is something which is a past experience, do we write "After a few days" or "A few days later"?

Thanks.

Do you know whether or not the Lincoln who is referred to is Abraham Lincoln was president of the United States from 1861 to 1865?

Do you know whether or not the Lincoln, who is referred to, is Abraham Lincoln was president of the United States from 1861 to 1865?

The original sentence does not have the commas as indicated in my second sentence.

Why is this something?

Thanks.

The dying person sees all of this attention all of a sudden and the attention, together with how the person is feeling, are a message to him or her that the time to leave us is arriving soon.

Should "are" be replaced by "is"? Thanks.
