I have also inserted forms of the different instruments requisite to carry into effect the various recent acts of Parliament for erecting churches-enclosing wastes--ren pairing turnpike-roads-providing work-houses and other asylums for the poor, &c. &c.; and which, where no forms are expressly pointed out by the acts themselves, I have endeavoured to frame with a scrupulous attention to the spirit of those from which they emanated.

I have moreover inserted what I conceive to be the requisite clauses and provisions in Private acts of Parliament for those and other similar purposes; and have given such a general outline of the preliminary proceedings for obtaining such acts; a part of the work which, I hope, will be found of material assistance to the country practitioner.

All these additions, as well as every other which I have ventured to make to the former Edition, I have been careful to distinguish by asterisks, in order to prevent the possibility of any errors or injudicious alterations of mine, being imputed to the former Editor.

With this short exposition of my endeavours and my motives, I submit the work to the indulgence of a candid and liberal Profession.

ADVERTISEMENT.

The professional engagements of my friend, Mr. WILDE, being now fully equal to what my own were when he obligingly undertook the charge of compiling a Supplement to my PRECEDENTS IN CONVEYANCING, I have, with his approbation, committed the re-publication of them to the care of the PRESENT EDITOR; whether I have acted wisely in doing this, I leave (as it becomes me) to the judgment of a more impartial tribunal: I may perhaps, however, be permitted to say that I have done so without any apprehensions for the result.

C. BARTON.
