(ONE OF HER MAJESTY'S COUNSEL),
Barron on Bills of Sale and Chattel Mortgages, and of
The Conditional Sales Act (annotated).
Entered according to Act of the Parliament of Canada, in the year one thousand
eight hundred and ninety, by CARSWELL & Co., in the office of the Minister of Agriculture.
PERUSAL and consideration of the Bills of Exchange
Act, 1890, made necessary by the active practice of my profession, induced the belief that simply an Index to the Act, carefully and accurately prepared, would commend itself to those in my profession, or in business, having frequent occasion to refer to the law.
With a hope that my belief will be justified I present its result, which, if found useful, will be my reward.
