PREFACE TO FIRST EDITION

The many years I have served as United States Attorney have convinced me that the majority of the bar will welcome a sort of compendium of Federal Law and Procedure and indictment forms, that may be of instant assistance to them, when called into a criminal case in the Federal Court.

No especial claim of originality is made for the pages that follow. Reference books, annotations, dictionaries, encyclopedaes, and reports of the Courts have been frequently and studiously consulted. A great portion of the work, however, has been taken from my own annotations, made during my service as an official.

In the preparation of the volume, I have been conscientiously aided by my clerk and private secretary, Mr. J. A. Lantz.

The book is offered with the prayer that the labor of some fellow attorney may be somewhat lightened.

Yours very earnestly,

WILLIAM H. ATWELL. August 1, 1910.
