Information about this edition
From the "Transcriber's notes" from Project Gutenberg:
A few typographical errors have been corrected. . . the original has the words "co[=m]ander" and "su[=m]e". [=m] represents the letter m with a macron. It is a shortcut indicating that the word should have two m's in succession. . . Ellipses are represented as in the original. . . Spelling and punctuation errors in quoted material have been left as in the original.

For a full list of typographical errors, all of which are minor, see Gutenberg version of this text.
