1. The page number “53” refers to the page numbered 53 in the second second section of the book. The pagination begins anew at page 87 of the monograph as a whole to separate the original city ordinances from the new ordinances contained in the first section.
2. The date of the law’s passage is drawn from the introduction of this monograph (excerpt included in the attached PDF) and from the publication of a law from the same section of this book (viz., ch. 38, § 7; see “BARRE, VERMONT, CHARTER AND ORDINANCES OF THE CITY, ch. 38, § 7 at 116, 117” for that law’s entry in the repository) in a supplement to the Jun. 15, 1895 edition of the Granite City Leader; however, we were unable to include a copy of that newspaper because of copyright and terms-of-use restrictions.
