PREFACE

ΤΟ

THE SECOND EDITION.

In this Edition the requisite alterations have been made to meet the great changes effected in the Law of Evidence by recent decisions and statutes, especially the 14 & 15 Vict. cc. 99 and 100; 15 & 16 Vict. c. 76; and 16 & 17 Vict. c. 83. Much fresh matter has also been introduced, and the Work now incorporates the greatest part of the Author's Treatise on PRESUMPTIONS OF LAW AND FACT, &c., published in 1844. The whole has been carefully revised and corrected.

CHANCERY LANE,

January, 1854.
