taken by the Patent Office as to the payment of fees on patents granted on applications pending on the 31st Dec. 1883; a matter that is discussed in the Introduction. The Notes have been restricted to matters arising directly out of the Act. Under each section reference will be found to the Rules, Instructions, and Forms relating thereto, and, where necessary, reference is also made to the Rules of the Supreme Court, 1883, and to the new Bankruptcy Act. The Table of Cases is indexed as to names of both defendants and plaintiffs. For convenience of reference, the Instructions have in each case been placed immediately after the Rules to which they relate. No new Rules have as yet been issued in regard to practice before the Judicial Committee, and the existing rules are therefore printed in the Appendix.
I have to thank my friends Mr. W. A. Copinger and Mr. J. C. Graham, of the Middle Temple for valuable suggestions as to the Precedents; and I am much indebted to M. Munro for assistance in correcting the proofs.
