NOTE: Somtimes original published items contain mistaken information. Occasionally there is a duplicate issue number or erroneous date. This is especially prevalent in Newspaper publications.

In an effort to reflect the original document, we have kept the original volume, number and date on the item information. Yet in order to add clarity, we have indicated what we believe the original issue, volume or date should be.

For example:
  • Number 48 - December 7, 1918
  • Number 49 - December 14, 1918
  • Number 51 - December 21, 1918 (should be Number 50)
Although the Masthead (frontpage) reads Number 51, it should probably be issue Number 50.
