I wish to apologize for any errors or omissions that may be found in this transcript. This transcription is as accurate as I knew how to make it. Some of the entries were illegible due to ink blots, faded ink, poor penmanship, dark copies, and in some cases, light copies. In some instances I was unable to decipher the phonetic spelling used by the clerk. I attempted to use the spelling use the spelling that the clerk used, even though I felt that it was wrong.

There were some instances where the first initial or the first few letters of an individual's name was lost in the center fold of the book on the microfilm copy. When I returned to the Craighead County Courthouse in order to fill in the blanks, the 1890 Tax Receipt book had been misplaced.
