As stated in the introduction, an attempt has been made to place the general principles of the law governing bills and notes in the simplest and most direct English possible. In doing this, accuracy in statement of principle has been the controlling motive. I have to make special acknowledgment to Dean Clarence D. Ashley, of New York University Law School, for valuable aid and suggestion. The value of the cases and summary of the subject by Dean Ames, of Harvard Law School, is pre-eminent, and their aid is hereby acknowledged.
