merits. We therefore request that they may be considered wholly independently of ourselves, and particularly of the gentleman by whom the Reports are published. The design of this part of our publication, in few words, is this. There are many gentlemen who are desirous of laying before the public their opinions upon miscellaneous subjects in the law, whether historical or theoretical, by which the profession at large would be benefited or amused; yet such is the nature of the sale of law books, that it seldom if ever happens that any writer, upon subjects which are not merely practical, is paid the first expence of his work: whereas, were the same things published in a periodical work, the writer would at least have the satisfaction of an immediate dispersion of his opinions throughout the kingdom, free of any expence. * It is this facility which we offer to the profession, with a hope that it may promote useful inquiry, and aid in the general dispersion of knowledge; and if the advantages of it are duly weighed, we are confident that the utility of our publication in this point of view will be seen, and we trust it will be sufficiently encouraged.
* In some cases we could venture to promise the writer of any considerable essay, at a very trifling expence, a number of copies for his friends, or for the purpose of a separate sale.
