ORIGINAL AND AMENDED,
APPENDIX OF FORMS.
ENTERED according to Act of Congress, in the year 1852, by
AUTHOR AND PROPRIETOR, in the Clerk's Office, of the District Court of the Southern District of New York.
MY DEAR SIR,
I am, unexpectedly, compelled to be absent from the United States for a couple of months, which I the more regret, as it prevents me from taking an active part in the publication and circulation of your new book of practice under the present Code. Having examined it thoroughly, whilst it was in the progress of completion, I can speak understandingly of its merits. It is much needed at present, and will, I feel sanguine, answer all the purposes for which it was intended. I shall, most cheerfully, recommend it to all my personal friends at the Bar. Truly yours,
N. DANE ELLINGWOOD. New YORK, 4th May, 1852. To Henry WHITTAKER, Esq.
Having examined Mr. Whittaker's manuscript, I concur in Mr. Ellingwood's opinion of its merits, and cordially recommend it to the profession.
ROBT. J. DILLON.
I have examined 336 pages of Mr. Whittaker's new book of Practice under the Code, and I very cheerfully give to it my cordial approval, and strongly recommend it to members of the profession, throughout the State, as an excellent and thorough guide through the complexities of the new system.
Mr. Whittaker had his office with me for some time, and I can speak knowingly of his excellent and extensive knowledge of the general principles of law, and of the accuracy and precision of his mind. I have not a doubt of the excellence and success of the work.
J. W. GERARD. New YORK, June 9th, 1852.
