I am under lasting obligations to my colleagues, R. A. Thompson, Expert Engineer of the Texas Railway Commission; Edward C. H. Bantel, Professor of Civil Engineering; and Stanley P. Finch, Adjunct-Professor in Civil Engineering of the University of Texas. In addition to this assistance I have been aided by valuable suggestions from F. Lavis and Halbert P.Gillette, and from the following leading surveyors and engineers of Texas: C. F. H. von Blucher, Gustav Schleicher, B. F. Love, and W. D. Twichell.
The thanks of the author are hereby expressed to W. L. E. Gurley, Keuffel Esser, Eugene Dietzgen Co., and A. Wissler for many illustrations of instruments.
The traverse table has been omitted, as the ordinary ones are useless for angles not multiples of quarter degrees, and the large ones are books in themselves. As lands become more valuable, the transit survey is demanded where angles are read to the nearest minute, and for such surveys the small traverse tables are of no avail.
Tables I, II, III and IV are taken by permission from Henck's "Field Book," while Table V is from Searles' "Field Engineering."
