L. P. BROCKETT, M. D.,
CROARA PICAL AND STATISTICAL EDITOR OF JOHNSON'S CYCLOPEDIA.
COPYRIGHTED, 1889, BY GAYLORD WATSON.
88 LAKE STREET.
THE MANUAL which is now offered to purchasers in a new dress, has been published for the last ten years, solely as an accompaniment to Watson's New Railroad Map of the United States, and has never been offered to the general trade, though often sought for. The Publisher has at length determined to comply with the demand for its more general ciroulation, and at the same time adapt it to a new class of customers, those who are seeking homes for themselves in our country, and especially in the West and South.
In order to render it more worthy of the large patronage which it is certain to command, the publisher has obtained the services of an eminent Btatistician, and while retaining all those Facts and Statistics which have proved so valuable in former editions, correcting them up to date, so as to make it more acceptable than before to all those who have hitherto been interested in it, he has added all the necessary information in regard to the landed States and Territories, to enable any intending settler to decide which is the best region for him to select, how he may get there most comfortably and economically, what steps he must take to secure a perfect title to his lands, and what are in each case the best crops for him to raise, or the best business to pursue.
No Manual or Treatise of ten or twenty times the cost of this, has ever contained a quarter of the information here offered, for the intending settler, or for the enterprising mechanic or working man, who desires to make himself a new home beyond the Mississippi; and as every pains has been taken to make it perfectly accurate, and neither publisher, editor or any one else concerned has any axes to grind, or any pet project or speculation to promote in or by this work, it may be received as standard authority in all the matters of which it treats
