PREFACE TO THE FOURTH EDITION.

Burdened with many other duties, it was with extreme reluctance that I consented to prepare a Fourth Edition of this work. After accepting the task, at a sacrifice of time that might have been, to me, more profitably employed, I made an honest endeavor to produce a result creditable to the author and acceptable to the reader. How far the attempt has been successful my profession will judge.

My labor has been materially lightened by the aid of MR. JAMES B. CLARK, of the New York Bar, and I am at loss how adequately to acknowledge my obligation for his valuable assistance.

JOHN TOWNSHEND.

BENNETT BUILDING,

New York, January, 1890.
