To WILLIAM Astell, Esq., M. P., Chairman. Campbell Maso
RIBASKS, Esq., Depaty Chairman ; and the Directors for the
HONOURABLE SIR AND SIRS:
The patronage and facilities which I have received, from your Honourable Court, will ever be held in my grateful recollection, and I beg to return my sincere acknowledgments, for the very liberal support which has been afforded me.
When I represented the necessity of the revision and correction of the legal portion of this work by a Barrister of high legal attainments, I did it from a conviction that it would insure such a correctness, in explaining the intent, meaning, and application of the Mutiny Act, and of the Articles of War, as should give assurance and confidence to those, who might consult its pages; and my gratitude will, on all occasions, be as much evinced as it is felt, for the liberality with which the expense of that assistance has been defrayed ; as well as, for the handsome subscription by which the work has been supported; and by which, I have been enabled to ensure its publication.
My object has been, to render the Book of practical utility, applying to the subject all the information which I have been enabled to obtain; to endeavour to meet contingent and difficult cases which may arise in practice, and for which there appeared to be no mode of proceeding laid down elsewhere ; and to apply my consideration to
