Since the commencement of the publication of this Series of Reports, a large number of opinions by the different Judges within the circuit have come to the reporter's hands after the publication of the volumes to which they respectively belonged. These opinions are of such interest and value that the series would be essentially incomplete were they not to appear, even though their publication necessarily involves a break in the continuity of the series.
The reporter has, therefore, after a careful examination of these opinions, selected such as he deemed most valuable, and now presents them in their chronological order, with such notes and references to subsequent decisions as will, he trusts, make them more practically useful to the profession, and present, even in the older cases, the present state of the law applicable to the questions involved.
The opinions of the late Hon. David McDonald of Indiana, were furnished by his executors, and revised by him for publication shortly before his decease. Those of the other Judges have, in every case, been revised by the respective Judges. For the notes, the reporter alone is responsible.
J. H. B. Chicago, March 1, 1875.
