INDEX OF SUBJECTS.
(An index to include every reference to old authors and old books would be of excessive and unusual length. As names, titles, and dates, are to be found in the text, it is thought that an index of the subjects upon which references are made will be more useful. The names of living authors, and of recently published books, are included.)
