"This MAP Presents/A/BOSTONIAN'S/IDEA of/THE UNITED STATES/OF AMERICA" (Black text)
"A person born in the city/of BOSTON and residing in/BOSTON may not be a BOS-/TONIAN; yet a person born in/Hingham, residing in Newton/(dilatory domicile: Magnolia-/frequent crossings to England/and the Continent), is likely/to be a BOSTONIAN. The lack of/a definite text-book defini-/tion for A BOSTONIAN has/added to the many difficul-/ties encountered by the/Publishers of this map./The ideas held by many/BOSTONIANS concerning THE/UNITED STATES have been/gathered, evaluated, weight-/ed, and combined. This map, a composite of these ideas,/is the result." (Black text)
"Warning/As this map con-tains some inac-/curacies, its use in/connection with/problems in nav-/igation, astrono-/my, metorology,/etc. is not recom-/mended./The Publishers" (Black text)
