THE Utility of this Collection of Cases, (which

- contain the Opinions of some of the first Authorities in the Kingdom on Points of L Aw and EQUITY) is too apparent to make it necessary for the Editor to say much thereon ; any Gentleman in a Practical Branch of the Law, will here find such a Variety of Matters of Law, explained and determined, as will not only assist his Judgment, but also aid his Practice, so as to make it in some degree unnecessary for him to have the further Opinion of Counsel in almost any Case that can possibly occur.

The young Clerk, by a careful Perusal and due Attention to the Manner of drawing these Cases, will be enabled to execute any Thing of that Kind that may fall under his Department, with Accuracy and Precision, so as to be a Credit to himself and his Employer.

These Cases, as to their arrangement, are promiscuolly given as they were taken from the Papers of the Person to whom they belonged, yet the

Reader may, by referring to the Index (which is a · full Explanation of the Matter of each Case) with

Ease and Dispatch, find any Thing that he may
want therein.
June 1, 1776.
