But, remembering the Christian name and the profession of theindividual wanted, he would turn to the DIRECTORY, and trace him out.Like a house, every paragraph in "ENQUIRE WITHIN" has its number, --andthe INDEX is the DIRECTORY which will explain what Facts, Hints, andInstructions _inhabit_ that number.For, if it be not a misnomer, we are prompted to say that "ENQUIREWITHIN" is _peopled_ with hundreds of ladies and gentlemen, who haveapproved of the plan of the work, and contributed something to its storeof useful information. There they are, waiting to be questioned, andready to reply. Within each page some one lives to answer for thecorrectness of the information imparted, just as certainly as where, inthe window of a dwelling, you see a paper directing you to "ENQUIREWITHIN," some one is there to answer you.HOUSEKEEPERS of experience live at Nos. 1, 30, 438, 1251 and 2091; oldDr. KITCHINER lives at 44; CAPTAIN CRAWLEY is to be found at 46 and2568; the well-known Mrs. WARREN lives at 1809; Miss ACTON at 1310; Dr.FRANKLIN at 1398; Mrs. HITCHING at 215; Mr. BANTING at 1768; Dr. WILSONPHILIP at 1762; Mr. WITHERING at 2338; Mr. MECHI at 997; Dr. STENHOUSEat 1776; Dr. ERASMUS WILSON at 1700; Dr. SOUTHWOOD SMITH at 1743; Dr.BLAIR at 2180; M.
