BY JAMES M. KELLY
SAVANNA HUNATI U
EDWARD C. COUNCELL, PRINTER.
Entered according to the Act of Congress, in the year 1848, by
JAMES M. KELLY, in the Clerk's Office of the District Court for the District of Georgia. ADVERTISEMENT.
The third volume of the Reports of Cases in Law and Equity, argued and determined in the Supreme Court of this State, is now presented to the public.
The baste in which its publication has been forced, in order to comply with the provisions of the act organizing the Court, requiring its completion within four months, must be my apology for any inaccuracies that may be detected in the typography. Such errors as have escaped the vigilance of the proof reader, or which may have existed in the manuscript, so far as they have been discovered, are noticed in the proper place.
Two Acts of a general nature passed by the last General As
sembly of this State, amendatory of the law organizing the Court, Georgia are embodied, as taken from the newspaper publication of them.
The names of Attorneys admitted into the Supreme Court, with a table of the cases reported, and a copious Index of the points decided, under various appropriate heads or titles, are included.
This volume conforms to the plan of the second, in all respects, and extends to upwards of 630 pages.
In conclusion, I return my thanks to the Bench and Bar for their liberal support heretofore extended to me.
JAMES M. KELLY,
Reporter, &c. March, 1848.
