WILLS AND CODICILS.
BY WILLIAM ROBERTS,
OF LINCOLN'S INN, ESQ., BARRISTER AT LAW.
MUCH ENLARGED AND IMPROVED.
IN TWO VOLUMES.
PRINTED FOR J. BUTTERWORTH AND SON, FLEET-STREET;
AND J. COOKE, ORMOND QUAY, DUBLIN.
THE terms in which your Lordship has been pleased to express your acceptance of the Dedication of these Volumes, demand my particular acknowledgments.
My acknowledgments, as a member of the profession of the law, are also in an especial manner due to your Lordship, when it is considered that those parts of this Treatise which stand upon the firmest ground of principle and science, are drawn from your Lordship’s judgments. Without borrowing largely from that fund, I could never have fulfilled my engagements with the Public; or, perhaps it would be more correct to say, that if the vast and multifarious mass of former doctrines on the subject of Wills had not been reduced to some elementary consistency by the Cases decided within these last ten years in the Court of Chancery, I could never have ventured upon the undertaking
Under these circumstances a Dedication of the following Work to your Lordship has, I trust, enough in it of propriety to defend it from the imputation of presumption.
It is with the sincerest gratitude, therefore, that I beg to approach your Lordship with this tribute of professional industry, and to request that you will receive it as a testimony of the profound respect with which I am
Your Lordship's much obliged,
And obedient humble Servant,
Lincoln's Inn, Hilary Vacation, 1815.
