Green's St. Louis directory :
Military and Fire Companies.
There are seven Military, and as many Fire companies in this city.
The names of the officers of fourof the former, and of two of the latter,
have been furnished for insertion; but, lest they might be mistaken, by
strangers, as all of each that there were in the place, I have concluded to
insert none of them. As their insertion is a matter that concerns the com-
panies themselves, or their officers, a triffle more than it does the balance
of the world, their ommission is wholly attributable to themselves, or rather,
to the remissness or difference of the secretaries of those companies who
furnished no statement, and by which I am subjected to the necessity of
apologizing to those who did furnish statements, or abstracts.
