PREFACE.

SEVERAL excellent works explanatory of the theory of Code pleading are already in the hands of the profession. But it is believed that a work more practical in its character than any that has heretofore appeared upon the subject, embodying the requisites of good pleading under the new procedure, and adapted to use in all the Code States and Territories, will be heartily welcomed by the busy practitioner. Such a work has been attempted in the following pages. With a view to its practical usefulness, wherever the reformed procedure has been adopted, the decisions of the Code States and Territories bearing upon the subject of pleading have been carefully examined, and the result is here embodied in a form which is believed to be as convenient for use as the nature of the subject will permit. Especial pains have been taken to give the gist of all the later decisions upon the subject, and important statutory changes are also noted in connection with the decisions under the appropriate heads. Notwithstanding defects and imperfections which, perchance, may mar the work to some extent, it is offered to the profession in the confident belief that the test of actual use will insure it an abiding place in the office of the practicing attorney.
