ADVERTISEMENT TO THIS EDITION.



In the present edition, this volume has been revised, and
corrected, as far as the short period, which has elapsed since
the publication of the first, would permit ; with the endeavor
of the author to make it mdre deserving of the favor with
which it has been received. The laws of the United States
are cited from the edition of Mr. Peters, continued by Mr.
Minot, and published by Messrs. Little, Brown & Co., this
being now mostly in use, and incomparably the best which
has been published.

Cambridge, Massachusetts,
October, 1853.
