A note about the condition of the microfilm
The microfilm on which this digital edition is based were, in many cases, in very bad condition. Often the newspapers on which the microfilm were based were in bad condition. This digital edition has been reviewed for scanning quality and we believe the digital images are as clear as they can be, given the condition of the microfilm. Should you want to consult the original microfilm its call number is Micfilm N-US VA-6 in the Alderman Library Microfilm Collection.
