FREDERIC I. BETTS, Clerk of the Southern District of New York.
Since the publication of the first Volume, the Author has received, through the favor of the Chancellor, a large body of Original Materials which will greatly enhance the value of the work as a Book of authority. Many of the precedents, especially orders and decrees will be recognized as authority, having been drawn, as was usually the fact, or settled and approved by the present and former Chancellors in causes brought before them for adjudication. Those of the Court for the Correction of Errors were obtained from the minutes of that court, and they are also of the highest authority. To impart additional utility to these forms, the reports of the causes have been cited, or the names and dates of those which have never been reported. Upon examining and arranging these, and other manuscript materials, particularly those of a professional gentleman to whom I have before, with great pleasure, made my acknowledgments, I found it impossible to do justice to the work in each department of the subject, by limiting it to two small volumes. Another will therefore become necessary; and it has been so far prepared, that its publication may be soon expected.
