NOTE Your attention is called to the following in reading the Diary-

1st, Volume of year 1793 missing-Never owned by my uncle of Dr. Grinnan. Supposed to be in the possession of a Kentucky Taylor, but never found though searched for.

2nd, The liberty the author takes in spelling both of proper names and common words- also his punctuation. Many times the same names & words spelt differently in same entry.

3rd, A copy has been made of Dr. Grinnan's notes and most of them are a repetition of the entries in Diary, but some few are of interest and importance, so copied all.

4th, A copy of Gen. Return of the Reg't of Guards of Albemarle Barracks with notes by W.K. Anderson; the original owned by him.

It has been my purpose to follow the Ms. as closely as possible at all times and many times words are omitted by him but I have supplied nothing and been as accurate as I possibly could be
