Notes:

As a general note, the reader must be warned that Mrs. Weiss is not considered to be a completely reliable source. The degree to which information she presents is or is not true is not always easy to determine.

The text for this electronic version of the book was taken from an original printed form, revised for XHTML/CSS and to follow our own formatting preferences. Pagination of the original edition has been included.

The table of contents is a reasonable representation of the table of contents from the original printing. The title page in the current presentation has been rendered in a practical form, reproducing the information though not the form of title page in the original, which is given there in a more ornate form that defies easy imitation in XHTML. A note at the bottom of the title page attributes the title page design to Wm. Lincoln Hudson, and the cover design to Stephen G. Clow. The copyright reads as “Copyright, 1907 BY SUSAN ARCHER WEISS.
