f iQE herewith present the Sixth issue of the CHICAGO BLUE BOOK.
W We wish to thank our lady patrons for the appreciation they
have shown our efforts, and trust that this volume will retain the high
place in their favor, which we have won, and will endeavor to hold.
Neither time nor money have been spared to make the work as com-
plete and valuable as possible; notwithstanding this, the difficulty attend-
ing the compiling of such a book can be easily appreciated. We there-
fore trust that any omissions will be brought to our notice, that they
may be corrected in future. We keep the entire work standing in type,
that such corrections can be made promptly ; and in this way we hope to
make the Chicago Blue Book as nearly perfect as it is possible to make
such a volume.
The title, " BLUE BOOK," is simply a name given the work on account
of its blue cover. It does not refer to blue blood, as many people sup-
pose. Webster's definition of Blue Book is as follows: "BLUE BOOK A
parliamentary publication, so called from its blue paper cover, such being
commonly used ; also, a book containing a list of fashionable addresses."
We do not claim the BLUE BOOK to be either a City Directory or ab-
solutely an Elite Directory ; neither do we pretend to pass upon the social
or financial standing of the parties whose names are contained therein.
It is simply a compilation of thirty thousand names of the most promi-
nent householders of Chicago, and suburbs within a radius of thirty miles,
published in the most convenient form for reference by our lady patrons.
While retaining all the old features, such as Calling Days in the Street
List, and Summer Residences in Alphabetical List, we have added very
materially to our Miscellaneous Information, Club Lists, Churches, etc.
We shall always be pleased to receive any suggestions from our lady
patrons whereby we can enhance the value of this work to them, or any
information regarding Social or Literary Clubs and Associations, which
we have not already incorporated in our volume. The data of this work
has not been compiled from circulars or information out of other Direc-
tories, but experienced men, particularly adapted for such work, have been
assigned to each locality, and the greatest care has been used in selecting
these names. In order to issue the book before the Holidays, it is neces-
sary for us to commence our canvass early in September. We would
therefore deem it a great favor if those absent from their homes after
October 1st would send us the information which they wish inserted, as it
is not safe to take it from servants, or anyone except the parties interested.

Now it is a fact that old frames
after re-gilding are better than
new ones, for the reason that the
wood is thoroughly seasoned with
time, and is more durable. By
sending a postal-card, I will send
a competent man to give figures
on all kinds of re-gilding frames
or furniture. A visit to the fac-
tory will give us pleasure and an
opportunity of showing our sam-
