* The early entries didn't have titles. See the "Date Range" table on the journal index for the complete list of journal pages.

* To save myself some work, I linked to each page rather than to each individual subject line.

* Multiple references may exist for some subject line topics, but I've cited the one I had in mind when I wrote it.

* Quotes may not be exact, but they were inspired by the cited source.

* Need more details? Check the list of definitions, visit the archive index, or use the contact link below and ask for clarification.
