THIS CERTIFIES that I have the original from which this Map was made, and from records in the abstract office of Handy & Co., believe it to be the first ever published. It has on it Wabansia's Addition, bearing date June 10, 1834, on the records. The next year Sept. 18, this subdivision was changed, which change does not appear on this map.

Chicago, Feb. 16, 1892. HENRY C. BROWN, WITH HANDY & Co.
