[This is the letter from proofreader Gary Drummond to Mr. Black in January 2001, enclosing his suggested changes to the transcription.]

Dear Mr. Black:

Thank you for putting the 1870 Murray Twp Census on-line. This kind of information is valuable to historians and researcher's such as myself. I have gone through the Census and suggest that you may wish to re-examine some of your entries for spelling. Others are more easily handled as a "remark". I realize some of my suggestions are based on perception, but others are historical association with the persons named.

Obviously one of the problems transcribers face is with Nineteenth Century orthography. But another is phonetic spelling which the Census taker employed especially in the Livermore area. (I think he was getting tired!) With charity, let's charge off some of his spellings to recent Irish immigrant accents.

I have listed only the household number below, so I hope you can make sense of my comments.

Gary B. Drummond
