From the cover: You may be wondering what the sailing scene has to do with the prairie state of Kansas, so we hasten to write that the foreground shows the American packet Roger Stewart, which brought Peter Gfeller and his family to the United States in 1853. Many of his descendents now live in Dickinson and Geary counties, Kansas (see pp. 598, 599). Photo courtesy of Stephen E. Merrell, Brunswick, Maine.
