It is with the public branch only of our system that this work is concerned, except in so far as the matter of Private and Adjective Law has been treated of in the first two Chapters. These Chapters are intended to give that general information concerning Law as a Science, without which it is impossible for the reader to appreciate the characteristic features of any particular system.
