can remember in all cases having taken it elsewhere; it is given
quite differently, in pronouncing the name, by the lady, child, or
servant, as also the street and number, and business.—Where
there are firms the difficulty is increased; and in neither case,
whether the addresses are both taken by the same or different
persons, can it be determined which is correct without again en-
quiring, where conflicting directions are detected, as is frequently
done in arranging the names for the press, and we have walkec
miles to make such corrections, repeatedly. Houses and parts of
houses are shut up, and we have to take the names from their
neighbours, if they know, if not, we cannot remember in all case
to call again.—Some have forbidden their name to be inserted.
number of persons cannot spell their names, and with these rea-
sons in view, we would admonish our fellow citizens from ex
peeling too much—or making unreasonable remarks. We have
used our best endeavours to have it as correct as practicable, and
believe we have succeeded. We do not say we have made no er
rors, in all our drudgery of collecting the names, and writing
transcribing and printing.
The thoughtless, envious, and silly inuendoes thrown out by
heedless, and by worse than heedless persons, who have mad
use of our labours on various occasions, and which cost them no
thing, we deem unworthy of notice.
The price of the Book and map is $1.50, and we unhesitatingly
say, admitting we sell the whole edition, we have given value in
labor and expense for all we shall receive. We have printed no
more than we expect to sell—and if there were no borrowing, not
so many as we could sell.
We have inserted some blank leaves in page 414, at the en;
of the white householders, in order that the subscribers may put
the name, occupation and residence of any who may be omitted
as well as correct any thing they may know to be erroneous. No
copies will be sold until the subscribers are served, and they ar
respectfully invited to note such omission, alteration or correction
as soon as convenient, and send it to the publisher, who will print
a supplement of all such omissions, corrections and alterations
as are furnished, as soon as practicable, without charge.
The colored householders are by themselves, and commence
at page 416.
