Note: The pages of this Personal Property Tax Book are not in alphabetical order. The summary figures appear to fit the pages as they are now assembled, so no attempt has been made to recompute the values. In the recapitulation the values for pages 13-14 and 15-16 were reversed. The summary values of these pages were switched in transcription to fit the page order in the microfilm volume.
