The Editor, in presenting this volume to the Profession, begs leave to state, that, contrary to his expectations, the Work cannot be comprehended in less than four volumes. This is the necessary result of the abundance and importance of the matter, contained in the manuscripts of Mr. Justice Washington; and of the length of the judicial period, during which he has, so honourably and so ably, presided in the CIRCUIT COURT OF THE UNITED STATES, FOR THE THIRD CIRCUIT.

In this volume, are, the decisions of Judge Washington in the Circuit Court of Pennsylvania, from April Term 1811, to April Term 1814, inclusive; and from April Term 1918, to October Term 1819, also inclusive; and the Cases decided in the Circuit Court of New-Jersey, from April 1818, to October 1820. The intervening Cases are contained in 1 Peters's Reports, published in 1819.-It is not intended to proceed further with the last-mentioned Work; but to complete the publication of the remaining Cases, decided in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, in a fourth volume to these Reports; which it is expected will be printed in 1828.

The three volumes of these Reports, with First Peters's Reports, and the succeeding volume of the present Work, will exhibit a series of decisions, commencing in 1803, and ending in 1828. In no portion of the political existence of the United States, have cases of such novelty, interest, and high importance to the Community, been presented before the Courts of the United States, for judicial investigation and decision; and before the Circuit Court, for the Third Circuit, most of the questions of law arising out of these cases, have been first examined and adjudged.
