over with the utmost attention, and to correct any literal errors or omissions, which the most accurate writer may be liable to.

It has afterwards gone through a second revisal by a gentleman of the profession, who, at the Editor's request, undertook to examine the quotations from reports, and other authors, in order to give to the world as complete a copy as possible, and that nothing might appear, throughout, unworthy of the Compiler.

How far he has succeeded in that attempt, the Editor must leave to the determination of the candid reader. As the work of Mr. Justice Blackstone, he has no doubt but it will be received by the gentlemen of the profession, for whose use it was intended, with a particular degree of regard.

Whatever errors may be found in the publication, he takes the demerit upon himself, hoping that the merit of the work will atone for any defects on his part, and that due allowance will be made for the Editor's total ignorance, till now, of the business of publication;—a task he did not undertake as a volunteer, or as thinking himself peculiarly qualified for, but as being called upon to engage in it, not only as a labour of friendship, but as a duty incumbent on him, as executor to the Author, and guardian of his infant children.

Boston House,
Feb. 20, 1781.







N. B. All the cases to page 718 inclusive, are determinations of the Court of King's Bench,
and from thence of the Court of Common Picas; except some few cases determined on points of
law after condemnation for felony, by the Twelve Judges at Serjeant's-Inn, and a few others on
appeal in the Exchequer Chamber, or at the Delegates.
