PREFACE. The Proprietors of the following work, in offering it to the public, solicit that candor which should be reasonably expected from a new attempt of a nature requiring a great variety of information to be collected from many and distant sources. While we regret that any errors should be found, we dare hope they will not be numerous nor important. We have spared no exertions to render it as accurate and copious as time and circumstances would permit.
To those correspondents who have so ļiberally and readily furnished us with materials for this compilation, we return oțr most cordial thanks : as well as for the good wishes, they have been pleased to express for the success of our undertaking. We respectfully request their further attention, that any errors now discovered may be corrected, and the work be made more accurate, should public patronage justify our labors to continue it annually.
