NOTICE.

BY the present volume, this Series of State Trials (terminating with the Reign of his late Majesty) is brought to a close ; nor is there, at the present moment, any intention to continue the publication of Modern State Trials to a more recent period. Availing themselves, therefore, of the opportunity which thus presents itself, the Publishers have completed their arrangements for the early appearance of a GENERAL DIGESTED INDEX, embracing the contents as well of the First as of the Second Series.

In selecting from the very numerous cases which fall under the denomination of State Trials, those which form the Second Series, care has been taken to reject none the omission of which would be inconsistent with the general object of the work. Of those which have been omitted, some did not appear to be of sufficient importance to counterbalance the inconvenience of the great extension of the work which their insertion would have occasioned; and others, in so far as relates to material points, are fully reported elsewhere.
