The cases which have been reported since this work went
to press, and which could not be inserted in the places to
which they would otherwise have been allotted, will be found
in notes to the Precedents, and in the Addenda.
In consequence of the act for regulating the treatment of
insane persons not having been passed until after the other
statutes in the Appendix had been printed, that act does not
appear in the order in which it otherwise would, but is placed
after the statutes relating to Ireland and Scotland (8).
Such modern precedents, selected in almost every in-
stance from cases of actual occurrence in practice, explana-
tory of other parts of the work, as it was thought would be
useful to members of the Profession not already versed in
this branch of practice, are inserted in the Appendix, with
some Bills of Costs recently taxed by one of the Masters of
the Court of Chancery.

th:1110 17 of the 2 & 3 Will. 4, c. 107, appointed the Right Hon. Lord
