With this issue Lewisiana enters upon
its sixth year. In these years it has
doubled its size, in pages, and its influence,
in subscribers. Yet it is far short of what
the leader of family papers ought to be.
The Editor is willing that it be placed
along side of other papers of its class— in
fact courts such comparison. But the fact
remains, the work is not satisfactory.
How can you and I, reader, make Lewis-
iana for the coming year more successful
thaa, in the past? What are its needs?
While the preparation of a paper of this
kind must necessarily be more or less a
labor of love and while no Volume as yet
has been self-supporting, yet if all of our
kind friends will promptly remit their un-
paid back subscriptions, the account for
Volume V will nearly balance. This fact
is encouraging as indicative that Volume
VI will be self-supporting. But with wid-
tniug influence, with more tangles and
puzzles in records calling for more re-
search and examination of authorities, ex-
penses are constantly increasing. These
must be met by new subscriptions. Don't
you know of one? Have you not a cousin
• who would enjoy the paper? If possible
send in your own subscription when you
receive this issue. What a load would be
removed from the publisher if before
August he might have cash enough in the
treasury to pay all printer's bills for the
Keaily every mail brings the promises
of records, most of which of oourse are
never fulfilled. Already in several cases
the writers have joined the great majority
and the records which they could have
given with little work must be gatliered
item by item by otiiers. Why not send
now, i.>-day, what i/o// have? The more
the Eilitor lias, tlie better can each issue of
the paper be made, and the more inquiries
concerning ancestors can be answered.
These inquiries are very numerous and
take much time to answer. But when
they, as they frequently do, lead to new
subscriptions and further records, the
Editor forgets the toil, and turns with new
zest to the next. Many a pleasant remind-
er of such searches for the missing link has
he received. Send whatever bits of his-
tory, anecdotes and information you have
in order that each number may not merely
be a mass of genealogical facts but a read-
able paper as well. Let Volume VI show
a marked advance over Volume V.
It is hoped that each issue for the com -
ing year may have an illustrated page,
either a portrait of some Lewis or else an
illustration of some place or object of fam-
ily interest. "Who will help? Some of us
have or know of Lewises who have cuts
already made. Can we secure the loan of
them? Some of the more favored in
worldly goods of our name will perhaps
willingly contribute a picture of them-
selves and the small sum necessary to
cover the cost of making a cut. The
Editor has made special terms with an
engraver for such work and will be glad
to correspond with all who desire help
here. Some one family or group of de-
scendants of some eminent Lewis could
club together and at slight expense pre-
serve for all time their ancestor's likeness.
The one portrait can be seen by the fevv
only. Who can tell how many willsee it
when printed in Lewisiana? Nearly
every Book could furnish several examples.
In Book VIII Nathaniel and his son Hora-
tio Gates Lewis were among tlie most not-
able men of their time. Who knows how
they looked? Who has a picture? Why
not have their likenesses preserved in a
more permanent form?

over fifty years he and his wife, a woman
in every way worthy of hira, traversed
life's pathway together. Together they
hewed a home out of the unbroken wilder-

Explanations. Abbreviations, etc.
For convenience the records of the
various Lewis families are divided into
Books and each Book into chapters. At
the head of eacli Book appears the name
of the earliest known ancestor of that
family. The List of Books is a complete
index to the Books as published to this
time. jSTew Books will be added from
time to time as new branches of the Lewis
family are found. As soon as Books are
proved parts of others they will be merged
into the Books to which they belong.'
Each name is numbered when first printed
and Avhenever the name is repeated this
number follows in brackets. The abbre-
viations commonly u.sed in genealogical
work are used ; as b. for born ; d. died ; m.
married; m. (1) first wife; dau. daughter;
unm. not married ; v. p. see page ; etc Instead
of repeating the name of a place in the
same paragrapli initials only are frequently

JOSHUA LEWIS, Wales to Conn.
A Clipping upon Footgear.
]Mrs. Lewis has furnished to the "Jour-
nal of Hygiene" some hitherto uiipub!i.shed
manuscripts of Dr. Dio Lewis (v. p. 116,
Vol. IV) upon footgear. The renowned
hygienist said that the ankles should not
be closely fitted, because a ligature about
the blood vessels, muscles and tendons
must produce weakness. Cloth uppers
should be worn in warm weather, because
the porous texture permits evaporation
and cools the feet. Rubbers should not be-
worn except under most exceptional cir-
cumstances, because they produce tender-
ness. Walking he regarded as a most im-
portant means of health, and he said shoes
should be such as to permit easy walking
and good circulation. So long as women
walk on the same earth as men, Dr. Lewis
said, their stockings and b-jots should be
as thick and warm.
Dr. Lewis advised that children should
be allowed to run in the garden without
shoes in summer, "with their little feet in
loving contact with the bosom of mother
