In all of the transcripts of source materials on reading I have attempted to give the material exactly as it first appeared. In each entry, there will be a page number (s), sometimes an explanatory note, and then a colon: following the colon is the entry as exactly I found it in the sources. That includes quotation marks, misspellings unless the meaning is unclear. There will be obvious exceptions such as transcripts from archival/manuscript sources that can’t be duplicated in type, as well as inadvertent mistakes. The colon is the key, but I urge users of these entries to make their own check on any sources used.
