The four-hundred and twenty-third volume of the Archives of Maryland series was originally published in 1897. The Archives of Maryland edition was published in 2002 by the Maryland State Archives. This is the first survey established by "an act to establish a State Geological and Economic Survey, and to make provision for the preparation and publication of reports
and maps to illustrate the natural resources of the State, together with the necessary investigations preparatory thereto" which was passed in 1896 (Acts of 1896, Ch. 51).
