Edition; from various MS. Notes of the highest authority, by eminent
OBSERVATIONS FROM THE SUBSEQUENT REPORTS ON THE CASES
REPORTED BY MR. BROWN,
By ROBERT BELT, ESQ.
IN FOUR VOLUMES.
PRINTED BY A. STRAHAN, LAW-PRINTER TO HIS MAJESTY ;
THE AUTHOR'S PREFACE
THE SECOND VOLUME.
THE following sheets contain the principal cases which have received 1 adjudications in the court of Chancery during the last year. Several others, of considerable importance, were argued, but, not having received judgment, it was thought improper to make them part of this publication ; but, as the Reporter intends, if life, health, and leisure shall permit him, to publish the cases of each succeeding year, somewhat before the subsequent Michaelmas Term, until he shall have completed, at least, another volume, of the same size with that he published last year, those cases which were not ripe for production now, will appear in the order in which they shall be finally determined : and, at the close of the volume, proper tables will be added to the whole. The Reporter feels himself bound to repeat his thanks to his friends who have favoured him with their assistance, and to express, though faintly, his sentiments of gratitude to the profession, for the favourable reception with which his former volume has been honoured.
