Front matter: "The Editor takes this method of informing the public, that he is sorry to have been deprived the pleasure of having produced this work at the usual time.  The delay has originated in consequence of the Yellow Fever, which, he trusts, will be admitted as a sufficient apology. -- It may be necessary to --- that whatever names cannot be found in the body of the work, will be found in the Supplement annexed to page 158."
