Re: Interesting article on CW
- My Arkansas Grandmother [born somewhat before 1900] insisted on the
archaic-sounding "Arkansawyer." She was quite proud of being a High
School graduate [meant as much then as a bachelor's degree today, if
not more] and apparently had been taught that the above usage was
correct, modern notions of correct usage notwithstanding.

- A good reason why any published OR quotation needs to be cross checked
against the hard bound!
Guild Press is excellent at accepting typos found in their CD. Send them
Guild Press has done a fantastic job in catching typos, although a few
slipped through. When cross-checked, I find that they were in cases
where the original was printed lightly or blurred.
BTW, I am always amazed at how few typos there are in the original ORs!
Boy, those folk had great spell-checkers on their typesetters!

In this instance I had just cut and pasted the text from the ORs at
www.ehistory.com I have found at other times that there are typos
in their text. I think the material there is scanned in and it is
likel that the optic reader misread things such as an 'r' and a 'v'
as an 'n'.
