PREFACE.

This little Treatise was originally delivered as a Lecture,
before the Wolverhampton Law Students' Society, a fact
which must be my excuse for adopting language more
colloquial and less soporific in style than that generally
adopted in Law Books. Of compendious treatises on the
Act there are enough and to spare, but it seemed to me
probable that a concise account of its provisions, with
a few practical criticisms on them, would not be un-
welcome to busy practitioners and to most students, and
this surmise has proved to be correct, the First Edition
having been sold in less than two months. I gladly take this
opportunity of thanking my friend Mr. H. L. MANBY, M.A.,
of the Chancery Bar, for the valuable assistance which he
has afforded me in the preparation of this new edition.
