[Transcriber's Note:

There were a LOT of inconsistencies in spelling, accents, hyphenation and use of quotation marks. I decided to make it as consistent as possible, while trying to stay as close as possible to the scans.

Where hyphenated and non hyphenated versions of a word co existed in the text (within lines) I converted to the hyphenated version, as those versions were by far the most common.
