Transcriber's Notes:

Page 16, "Eight" changed to "Eighth" (Seventh, Eighth, E, and)

Page 47, "Amphitheatre" changed to "Amphitheater" to match photo caption
(Amphitheatre, Arlington)

Page 47, the numbers were cut off of the original image on the final
column of the Table of Contents. All but one of the numbers could be
ascertained by checking the original. The entry for the War Department
was unclear as it was clearly a single number, but the War Department
shows up on pages 15 and 18. These were both included in the Table of
Contents.

Public domain books belong to the public and we are merely their custodians.
This effort is time consuming and expensive, so in order to keep providing
this resource, we have taken steps to prevent abuse by commercial parties,
including placing technical restrictions on automated querying.

We also ask that you:

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Doctrine Publishing
Corporation's ISYS search for use by individuals, and we request that you
use these files for personal, non-commercial purposes.

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort
to Doctrine Publishing's system: If you are conducting research on machine

large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the use of
public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help.

+ Keep it legal -  Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for
ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just because
we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States,
that the work is also in the public domain for users in other countries.
Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we
can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of any specific book is
allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Doctrine Publishing
