Extract of a letter from Chief Justice Marshall, dated,

RICHMOND, Dec. 3rd, 1832.

I have read the work through, with advantage to myself, and with some suprise at finding that a subject which has employed so many pens, should still admit of being presented in a form that may make the book an acquisition certainly to the Law Student, and indeed to the profession. You have well arranged the matter belonging to the subject, and have succeeded in your design of presenting it," as a system of consistent and rational principles, adapted with the utmost precision to the administration of justice, according to uniform rules."

By showing the reason of the rule plainly, the rule itself becomes more intelligible to the student, and will more certainly adhere to his memory.

Allow me to repeat my thanks for the gratification afforded me by the perusal of your work, and to assure you that I am with very great respect, Your obliged and obedient servant,

J. MARSHALL.
