EXPLANATORY OF THE SEVERAL CLAUSES,
THE OBJECT OF THEIR ENACTMENT,
AN INDEX TO THE ACT.
RICHARD TROTT FISHER, ESQ.
OF LINCOLN'S INN, BARRISTER-AT-LAW.
43, FLEET STREET.
It has been the object of the Editor of the following pages to explain, in the most convenient form, and as shortly as possible, the alterations effected in the law by the Act respecting Wills which has just passed the Legislature. For this purpose it was necessary to explain something of the law as it had been previously established by statutory enactment and judicial decisions : - but in doing this he has endeavoured to confine himself strictly to such part only as is affected by the provisions of the new Act; the order of which he has followed, for the convenience of comparison. This must be his excuse for the incomplete and desultory character of his observations. No apology seems necessary for any attempt to elucidate a statute of such great and general importance.
