The index will be found to be general and strictly alphabetical, except that the constitution has a special index immediately following it, and the arrangement of both we hope may prove satisfactory. The references are to section numbers.
Although not made necessary by the statute, we have given, as an appendix, a table of the titles of sundry Acts which could hardly be called “ of general and public interest,” with references to the volumes wherein they may be found. They pertain in most instances to the respective counties, or to corporations, or have fulfilled their office, or have been repealed; yet they are of interest to many and are not infrequently referred to.
Nearly ten months have been given to the preparation of this volume. While the difficulties have been great, no labor has been spared that would tend to completeness and accuracy. That we have entirely succeeded in our efforts is hardly to be expected ; that we have earnestly tried to succeed, is certain. It is our hope that the work may prove not only acceptable to the legal profession and the officers called to administer the laws, but to the people of the state at large.
