first rough print,
^these demand my warmest acknow-ledgments. Without this aid, the really great labour in-volved in the preparation of this Manual could neverhave been accomplished.Where the assistance received was so general andso valuable, it is difficult to make mention of one^IV PREFACS.more than another among the helpers.
