This Book

IS RESPECTFULLY DEDICATED TO THOSE WHOSE KINDNESS

HAS ENABLED ME TO PRODUCE IT.

TO MY PARENTS, WHO GAVE ME THE EDUCATION UPON WHICH IT IS BASED;

TO MY WIFE,
FOR HER LOVING SYMPATHY, ENCOURAGEMENT, AND ASSIST.

ANCE;
TO ORLANDO W. NORCROSS

OF WORCESTER, MASS.,
WHOSE SUPERIOR PRACTICAL KNOWLEDGE OF ALL THAT
PERTAINS TO BUILDING HAS GIVEN ME A MORE
INTELLIGENT AND PRACTICAL VIEW OF
THE SCIENCE OF CONSTRUCTION
THAN I SHOULD OTHERWISE

HAVE OBTAINED.
