TO THE

FIRST EDITION. WO Treatises are already before the public on tempting to appreciate the respective merits of these performances, or to compare them particularly with his own, the author of the present publication feels it necessary to observe, that the plan of his work differs very materially from either of the others. He has endeavoured to produce a composition, which, 4 without disgusting the professional reader, may be easily comprehended by men of business, and serve as an elementary treatise to the student. In executing this plan, he has given, under each division, an historical dedu&tion of the opinions which have been held on the point immediately under discussion, and concluded with the law as settled by the latest decila ions, where, in fact, it has been settled. Where the point remains still in doubt, he has stated the arguInents on both sides of the question. How far he has succeeded in the execution, the public only can decide.

No. 4, Hare Court, Temple,

QEtober, 1790.
