PUBLISHERS' PREFACE.

THIS volume brings down Vice-Chancellor Sandford's deci

sions to August, 1846. Another volume, which will be put to press without delay, will complete the series of his judgments in the court of chancery. Several of the cases which will appear in the fourth volume, are exceedingly interesting and important; such as Iddings v. Bruen, Monroe v. Douglas, The Heirs of Anneke Jans v. Trinity Church; and others equally well known to the bar of New York.

The publishers venture to assure the profession, that the cases in the volume now issued, well sustain the interest and value of those which have preceded it.

The usury defences, and especially that of the Dry Dock Bank; the Gilbert Will case, and several others on the construction of wills, Clarke v. Sawyer, on the subject of mental capacity to make a valid will; the case of Smith's Executors, on the validity of an accommodation endorsement put in circulation after the endorser's death; Sagory v. Dubois, on the liability of subscribers to stock in corporations and associations, to pay up their shares on the insolvency of the company; and the unusually intricate and important mortgage cases of Loomer and of King, will at once attract the attention of the reader. In short, a reference to the index will show that almost every head of equity jurisdiction, has been illustrated in this volume.

The publishers rely with confidence, on the continued approbation of the bar in their undertaking.

New York, March 10, 1848.
