In offering to the profession an American edition of Roscoe ON EVIDENCE, the Editor thought it would greatly add to its convenience, to adapt its references to the English Common Law Reports, edited by Messrs. SERGEANT and LOWBER, and the English Ecclesiastical Reports, edited by Mr. INGRAHAM. This, he has endeavoured to do with accuracy, the only merit which such a work can claim. A few notes have been added, referring to American decisions in some cases where the law has been considered doubtful, or the judgments of our courts have been different from those of England.
evidence, decided since the first publication of this work, have been added, and the whole of the text has been revised and corrected. Some new titles have also been inserted, as “ Assumpsit on Promise of Marriage;" “ Assumpsit for Interest of Money ;" “ Case for Excessive Distress ;” and “ Trespass for False Imprisonment;" and considerable additions have been made to the former titles. The Index has also been re-constructed and much enlarged.
