Despite its seeming status as an end portion of chapter 8, this chronology is not denoted in the descriptive matter found in the table of contents or at the outset of chapter 8. Furthermore, the size of the type used for the chronology’s title is equivalent to that for each chapter designation (e.g., “CHAPTER VIII”). For these reasons the chronology is being categorized herein as an item unto itself rather than as an excerpt of chapter 8.
