CAMBRIDGE:

PRESS OF JOHN WILSON AND SON.

PREFACE.

Having, since 1860, been in the habit of noting in the margin of my copy of the General Statutes of Massachusetts all subsequent statutes and all the more important explanatory decisions which have appeared in the volumes of reports published since that date, stating in a short and rough way the purport of the statute or decision to which reference was made, I had accumulated a mass of marginal references which were extremely valuable and useful to me. It finally occurred to me that these marginal notes might be made useful to others, if they were printed in a separate volume in the form in which they are now published. In pursuance of this idea, all these marginal notes have been written out in a more presentable shape by myself and my brother, and in all the more important chapters we have also stated the purport, so far as it seemed noteworthy, of all the cases, references to which are printed in the margin of the statutes. This has been done in chapters 1-5, 8, 9, 11-23, 27, 29, 32–37, 40, 45, 47– 49, 51, 54-57, 64-66, 68, 75–84, 86, 87, 89–111, 115, 117, 119, 123–133, 137, 139–142, 147, 151, 153, 154,

and 157, and in the statutes subsequent to the General Statutes ;- in the other chapters, this has been done only partially.

The references in this volume to subsequent statutes are, it is hoped, substantially complete ; — with regard to the references to decisions, however, it is evident that some, which ought properly to have been noted, may have been overlooked, and that the true purport of others, which are noted, may have been misapprehended; and it is hoped and desired that all members of the legal profession in this state, who may notice any omissions or any errors in this work, will, as a matter of mutual interest and benefit, give information thereof by mail or otherwise, in order that such omissions may be supplied, and such errors corrected in a second edition, should a second edition ever be called for. The latest decisions which have been noted are those contained in Vol. 98 of the Massachusetts Reports, of the earlier decisions, those to be included in Vol. 16 of Gray's Reports, as that volume is not yet published, are not referred to.
