'The General Statutes of the State will go into operation on the second day of December next. They have been printed under the direction of the undersigned, who were appointed by the Supreme Court, pursuant to a resolution of the General Assembly, “ Commissioners to revise the Public Laws of the State, to consolidate all Statutes which relate to the same subject, and to digest the same under proper titles, chapters, and sections, and to report the same to the General Assembly, with such proposed improvements, alterations, and additions, as they may deem proper.”
The Commissoners made their final report at the last May session of the General Assembly, at which time these statutes were enacted. The undersigned have had the assistance of Mr. John F. Tobey, in the preparation of the table of contents, and the head and marginal notes, and he has had also the immediate supervision of the book while passing through the press.
