Kenneth B. Holmes, curator of the Barnum Museum of Bridgeport, Connecticut, has written to call our attention to the fact that the credit accompanying the picture of the Legrand Sterling mansion on pages 20-21 of our June, 1974, issue was incorrect.

Mr. Holmes also noted that we misplaced the Bridgeport Public Library, which was and is on the corner of Broad and State streets, not on John and Main.
