Hundred and Eighty, by
ROBERT A. LYNCH,
SUPREME COURT OF SOUTH CAROLINA.
COLUMBIA, S. C., May 13, 1880.
The urgent need of this book must be my only apology for its appearance. Undertaken at first for the private use of the Justices of the Supreme Court, it is destined to have, I hope, a wider range of usefulness. As to its accuracy, those most competent to judge have spoken; as to its merits otherwise, the profession at large must decide. Conscious that the profession, knowing the time, patience and mental labor required in this undertaking, in the imperfect arrangement of our Statutes, I present “THE CODE As It is” to the tender mercies of the gentlemen of the Bar of South Carolina.
ROBT. A. LYNCH.
COLUMBIA, MAY 4, 1880. ROBERT A. LYNCH, Esq.,
DEAR SIR: I have carefully examined your compilation of the provisions of the Code of Procedure, and the Statutes amendatory thereof, and believe that it is full and accurate, correctly representing the existing practice in this State, in a convenient form for reference.
A. J. WILLARD.
COLUMBIA, S. C., MAY 7, 1880. MY DEAR SIR: From the examination which I have been able to make of your proposed new edition of the Code of Procedure, I am much pleased to say that the work seems to have been done carefully and accurately.
The plan which you have adopted is a good one, and appears to have been faithfully carried out.
I am satisfied that the work will prove of great value to the profession.

DEAR SIR: You were kind enough to allow me to look through the manuscript of your little book, " THE CODE AS IT IS," and it seems to me the work has been accurately done. It will certainly be a most useful hand-book for the Bench and the Bar.
The Amendments to the Code are scattered through the Acts of the last ten years, and there is always danger of overlooking some of them. Your amended Code obviates the difficulty, and presents in the same connection the original text and all the amendments thereto. The profession owes you a debt of gratitude.
