ERRATA.

Diagram of les Quatre Coins.

The ace of clubs, being one of the foundation cards, would have been played in its allotted space when it appeared in the deal. (See explanation.)


Diagram of l'Horloge.

Tableau No. 2 represents the Patience when finished.


Diagram of les Petits Paquets.

The knave should not be on the eleventh packet, nor the five on the fifth packet, as they would be exiles (see explanation). This Patience being played with two packs only, the three fives and the three deuces represented are also incorrect.


British Constitution, for "Queen of Clubs," read "Queen of Diamonds."


Diagram of Sympathie.

The upturned cards representing a single pack, the duplicate cards are incorrect.
