PRESS OF JOHN WILSOX AND SOX.
HON. JOHN BROWN FRANCIS,
LATE GOVERNOR OF THE STATE OF RHODE ISLAND, AND LATE SENATOR IN THE
CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES FROM THAT STATE,
THE FOLLOWING TREATISE
IN TOKEN OF THE HIGH RESPECT AND UNAFFECTED FRIENDSHIP OF
PREFACE TO THE SIXTH EDITION.
In the preparation of this edition the Editor has pursued the same plan as heretofore. He has deemed it, however, inexpedient unnecessarily, and without any corresponding advantage, to swell the volume by the addition of many cases, especially from the older States, which are merely in recognition of previously decided cases. For the same reason he has not added to the Appendix the statutes of those States upon which no adjudications have come to hand. Nevertheless, about two hundred additional cases, decided since the publication of the fifth edition, have been cited in their appropriate places, and the work will be found, as heretofore, a pretty nearly complete repertory of what is to be found in the books, of value, upon the Law of Limitations. .
