It will be observed that some of the sections are twice numbered, as thus188 [116], --while other sections are only once numbered; also that some sections are preceded with the word and figures (am'd 1849), or (am'd 1849— 1851), &c., while others have no such prefix; and, further, that some sections have the words "existing suits” prefixed, and others have not.

The reason for those prefixes or the omission of them, is to give the reader at a glance, the history of each section ; as thus :

When a section is only once numbered, as 8 227, it indicates that it is one of the sections added in 1849.

When a section is twice numbered, as $ 348 [297], it indicates, 1, That the section is one of those which existed in the code of 1848, and, 2, that in that code it was numbered as within the brackets ( ). When the words “existing suits'' are prefixed to a section, they indicate that the section is one of those which the provisions of the supplementary act apply to suits pending on July 1, 1848, When the word and figures (am'd 1849), or as the case may be, are prefixed they signify that the section was amended in the year or years which the figures indicate. Howard's Practice Reports are cited as “How."; Abbott's Practice Reports

Abb."; Bosworth’s Superior Court Reports as “Bogw.” The references to the Revised Statutes, not otherwise marked, are to the first edition.

This Edition of the Code contains references to all the reports issued to June, 1864, and includes 25 New York, 40 Barbour, 7 Bosworth, 2 Hilton, 16 Abbott, 26 Howard.

While this work was passing through the press there was issued volume 26 of New York Reports, volume 40 of Barbour's Reports, volume 17 of Abbott's Practice Reports, and volume 27 of Howard's Practice Reports, and a number of decisions from these volumes have been incorporated in this work.
