LETTER OF TRANSMITTAL
Department Of The Interior,
Washington, D. C, January %, 1905. Sir: I transmit herewith a bulletin on the origin of place names in the United States. This is a second edition of Bulletin No. 197. The material has been compiled from various sources, printed and manuscript, as set forth in the introduction. I think this work will be of great interest as embodying much local and general history. Very respectfully,
THE ORIGIN OF CERTAIN PLACE NAMES IN THE UNITED STATES
By Henry Gannett.
During the compilation of this work a large correspondence was carried on with State and local historical societies, State, county, and township officers, and individuals in all parts of the country for the purpose of obtaining information concerning the subject in hand. The greatest interest was shown and much work done by correspondents, who have thus contributed very largely to the work. Much valuable material was collected in this way which otherwise would have been unavailable.
May be ordered through the nearest Family History Center.
