The Society is st ill active today from its location at 611 Spring Garden Street in Philadelphia. The Joseph Horner Memorial Library is the largest private German libraryin the United States. I am indebted to the organization, espe- cially Dr. Margarethe Castrogiovanni the Society's librarian for her kind assis- tance in securing materials on the Alliance that were not available elsewhere.

Many of the German words cited in this book may appear different from their modern form. I have decided to maintain the integrit y of the source material by spelling them as they ap- peared in the original documents
