I hope they complete Series I first!  The last
time I looked, they did not have the South
Carolina or Virginia Gazettes from the
1730s-1740s, although those are on microfilm.  I
think they are also missing Bradford's New York
Gazette (same period), perhaps because that is
not in Readex's microfilm but rather the NYPL's.
