David ROBERTS, in the Clerk's Office of the District Court for the District of Massachusetts.
The present work is about to be committed to the profession and public, with the hope that it may accomplish the Author's design and plan, and become a useful and readable Law Book.
If it have the effect upon any student, ambitious to excel in his profession, to stimulate to labor and incite him to the requisite study, it will be some compensation.
If it find moderate favor on its mission, that will furnish encouragement to future improvement; and to this end, the Author announces that any seasonable suggestions from the kindly disposed, or candid criticisms of the profession, will be cordially welcomed.
“ TO HON. CHARLES G. LORING 1
This volume is, with his consent, respectfully dedicated, as some slight token of my appreciation of his honorable career as a conspicuous member of a Bar, heretofore as now, distinguished for the eminent ability of its members.
“In so doing I recall, but with a melancholy pleasure, the kind, just, generous, and magnanimous tribute of respect and affection (which was by Mr. Loring addressed to the Suffolk Bar, July 19, 1859,) for an early friend and correspondent, the late Rufus Choate, that greatest of advocates and most amiable of men, from whose approval of my plan, I probably received more encouragement in this undertaking than from any and all other sources.
| The Dedication, as prepared in 1864, will be retained, and is now given in memoriam. May 25, 1869. D. R.
