THE HONORABLE JOHN LOWELL, LL. D.,
JUDGE OF THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE UNITED STATES,
IS RESPECTFULLY DEDICATED
NOTE TO THE FOURTH EDITION.
In this revision are incorporated the new cases, more than eight hundred in number, and the changes in the statutes, published since the preparation of the previous edition.
In addition to the usual references to cases in the official reports, additional references have been made to all cases, both those now added and those cited in previous editions, which are reported in the Reporters of the National Reporter System, and to all cases reprinted in the American Decisions, American Reports, and American State Reports; thus in many instances giving references to two or three reports for the same case.
The present edition, as compared with the original edition, contains citations of some two thousand additional cases, and the work has been enlarged by the addition of some two hundred pages of new matter. The increase in the number of citations and in the number of pages does not, however, fully show the labor that has been given to the preparation of the new editions; for in each new edition much care has been taken to condense and improve the statement of the law previously made.
March 1, 1893.
