Preface.

In offering to the reading public the SKETCH BOOK OF ST. LOUIS, we have endeavored to meet a demand which has long existed for a work which would reflect the interests of the city in a true light. How well we have accomplished the task we leave you to determine; but should we lag behind your expectations, we beg your kind consideration, promising when we next appear before you to endeavor to be more worthy; in the mean-time we remain the public's faithful servants,

J. N. TAYLOR,
M. O. CROOKS.
