Arrangement note

Notebooks have been arranged as much as possible by topic as noted on the cover or spine of each book, although some notebooks have topics scratched off and new ones written in so there may be some out of place. The arrangement is primarily alphabetical. A bibliography of Hind's works was consulted during the arrangement.
