STATE OF NEW YORK
COMMISSIONERS OF THE CODE.
TO THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK:
The Commissioners of the Code, appointed by the act of April 6, 1857, beg leave to make this their third
And to submit herewith the Political Code complete.
Since their last report they have re-examined their draft, as required by law, considered the suggestions which have been received, and made such corrections and changes as seemed desirable. After doing this, they caused the work as finally agreed upon by them, to be distributed to all the Judges of the Court of Appeals, of the Supreme Court, Superior Court, and Common Pleas of the city of New York, and to all the County Judges, Surrogates and County Clerks; and, six months having since elapsed, it is now submitted to the Legislature, together with the draft of a bill to repeal the various statutes thus revised and consolidated.
The Commissioners regret that circumstances, unforeseen at the time of their second report, have prevented them from presenting the Penal Code at the present session.
They have prepared considerable portions of the Civil Code, and hope to be able to present them at the next session of the Legislature.
All which is respectfully submitted,
DAVID DUDLEY FIELD.
