TO THE

Hon. JOHN K. KANE,

JUDGE OF THE DISTRICT COURT OF THE UNITED STATES FOR THE EASTERN DIS

TRICT OF PENNSYLVANIA.

SIR: I beg leave to present to you the following volume, prepared during the period in which, as Attorney General of Pennsylvania, you were pleased to associate me with yourself in the prosecution of the pleas of the Commonwealth. It affords me great pleasure to take this opportunity, at the close of the connection which was thus established, of expressing my sense of the generous confidence and the powerful support with which you honored me while that connection lasted. It was my good fortune to witness the unspotted honor, the eminent ability, the varied accomplishments, and the professional skill, with which you executed the duties of the office you then occupied; and I earnestly hope that for many years you will continue to adorn with the same high qualifications the judicial station you have since been called to fill. . . .

With great respect, I remain
Your obliged servant and friend,

FRANCIS WHARTON. PHILADELPHIA, August 20, 1846.
