copies of this paper, bearing above date. Each copy was printed
in four columns on the plain side of a figured wall paper. But
each differed from the other. For purpose of reference they will
be designated as A, B, and C. A and B belong to the Texas
State Library; C belongs to a student of the University of Texas.
The printed surface of A is nine and nine-sixteenths inches by
seventeen and nine-sixteenths inches, of B it is eight and three-
fourth inches by thirteen and one-half inches, and of C it is, nine
and seven-sixteenths inches by seventeen and five-sixteenths
inches. A and C agree in number, order, and arrangement of
the paragraphs, but the style of type used is different; conse-
quently the matter does not correspond line for line. B is smaller
in size, but uses a type about the same size as C, hence it became
necessary to omit a portion of the text. From, the copies in hand
it is not possible to ascertain which, if any, is an original issue.
A may be an original; the others are copies and, of course, more
recent. E. W. WINKLER.
