TO THE HONORABLE
ROGER B. TANEY, LL.D.
CHIEF JUSTICE OF THE SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES,
OF THE GREAT REGARD ENTERTAINED FOR HIS INTEGRITY AS A JUDGE, HIS
LEARNING AS A JURIST, AND HIS VIRTUES AS A MAN,
In presenting the second edition of the INSTITUTES OF AMERICAN Law to the profession, every effort has been made to render it worthy of the patronage which has already been so liberally bestowed upon it, by correcting every little inaccuracy, and also by supplying an omission which was not noticed by the author until after it was too late to remedy it—“The manner in which easements may be extinguished.”
The family of the author would do violence to their feelings did they not return their sincere thanks to the Bench and Bar, for the many encomiums which they have been pleased to award the work. To the Hon. Joel Jones they feel much indebted for his kindness in furnishing the head omitted in the first edition.
