THIS TREATISE IS DEDICATED,
TESTIMONY OF RESPECT FOR HIS TALENTS,
ACKNOWLEDGMENT OF THE
GREAT OBLIGATIONS WHICH HIS FRIENDSHIP,
HIS PROFESSIONAL INSTRUCTIONS,
HAVE CONFERRED ON
HIS PUPIL AND FRIEND,
THE FIFTH EDITION.
THE increasing importance and practical utility of the Law relative to Bills of Exchange, and the numerous recent decisions on the subject, have induced the Author in this edition, with very considerable labour and anxiety, to recompose and enlarge the greatest part of the work—to insert in the notes full extracts from the leading cases, and to prefix an Alphabetical Index to the decisions. The chapters relating to Partners - Bankers-Bankers' Checks-Indorsement - Acceptance-Notice of Non-acceptance and Nonpayment—and on the Declaration and Evidence, will be found to have been very considerably enlarged, and the General Index has been much improved.-Circumstances which, the Author hopes, will be found to have rendered the work more worthy of the flattering reception it has received.
