It was the author's intention, as originally announced, to include in this volume the subject of Evidence in Ecclesiastical Causes. But considering that the civil jurisdiction of the English Ecclesiastical Courts is, in this country, distributed in various modes among the civil tribunals and is regulated chiefly by statutes, and that the spiritual jurisdiction of those Courts has scarcely any legal counterpart among us, he concluded, for the present at least, to abandon the design. The volume is therefore submitted, without that appendage, to the candor of a liberal profession.

Cambridge, Massachusetts,
