The reader will please to observe the following ge-
neral rule for finding the numbers on Houses:—In
those streets that run north and south, Main street,
for instance, the numbers begin at Market street,
running north and south, the odd being on the east
side; in the cross streets the numbers begin at the
river, the odd being on the north side.
For the names of streets, see ``List of Contests.''
As the pronunciation of a name will often admit
of various modes of spelling it, the reader is request-
ed not to relinquish his search, should he not find it
at the first attempt; but to seek for it under every
possible variet the ear may dictate—d. hdwelling house , stands for
dwelling house; c. h.counting house for counting house; N.North north;
S.south south; E.east east; W.west west; and st.street street.
Where the word street is not expressed it is to be
understood, as north Main—means north Main street;
and south A—means south A street.
