INTRODUCTION.

It has been the labor of the compiler of this digest to collect the decisions of the Supreme Court of California, giving such references thereto as would enable the profession to review all that has been judicially decided in this State.

It was considered to be the purpose of the digest to guide to the very page on which the point of law was found, rather than to the case in which it was enunciated, and therefore the page of the point decided is given. This obviates the necessity of searching through a lengthy opinion for a particular authority; yet, when that is reached, the surrounding circumstances and attendant reasoning can be immediately used.

All cases overruled are printed in italic, and under those decisions which have been abrogated by change of the statutory law, what change exists has been noted.

A correct list of cases affirmed, reversed, qualified, commented on, or abrogated by statute is furnished; also a list of cases digested, and the Judges and Reporters of the Supreme Court.

Such decisions as were rendered since the commencement of the January Term, 1861, are not incorporated in this digest.

HENRY J. LABATT. SAN FRANCISCO, May, 1861.
