Hello everyone. 

I am proof reading these is My Words: The diary of Sarah Agnes Prine,
1881-1901 By Nancy E. Turner. I was wondering about the ads in the start of
the book. Do I leave them alone or delete them from the text? I am
submitting the items below this message and any assistance would be greatly
appreciated. As of right now I have left them alone. Again any assistance
with this stuff would be greatly appreciated and I'm sure would help all of
us too. Thanks for your time and cooperation with this matter and I hope
everyone is having a spectacular day.
