In transcribing this book into the on-line library, the advertisements must, as a necessity for space, be omitted. They are numerous and give insight into the businesses in vogue in 1885, and are therefore of historical value, but the book itself contains such a wealth of information, and time and labor intensive to transcribe, that it was felt the reader would benefit more from the information itself. We see, within this book, such advertisers as "Fleischmann's Yeast, The Guarantee and the Union Trust banks of Philadelphia, numerous medical firms and practicioners and attorneys, and all of the trade representatives who paid for advertising in this little book. Intersperced within these advertisements is detailed information about the discovery and the formation of this great nation, with facts that are frequently overlooked in later histories. We have also omitted the legal forms from the back of the book as they are no longer useable.
