Lost Country

May 2024
1min read


We have come to grief on our foray outside the boundaries of the continental United States. A number of readers have pointed out that on the map of the Trans-Siberian railroad that appeared on page 13 of our August, 1974, issue, we have located Korea on the Kamchatka Peninsula, a good sixteen hundred miles north of where it actually is. And on the same page the date we give as August a, 1919, should read August 2, 1918.

We hope you enjoy our work.
