INDEX

Note: Variant spellings of personal names abound in the text. Although small, obvious errors can safely be corrected, more radical corrections would make the reader’s task of tracking down a name harder rather than easier. Therefore, many of the variants have been left as separate entries in the index. Readers may want to scan adjacent entries and similar-sounding names.
