The Publishers beg leave to submit the following extracts from communications relating to the Land Owner's Manual, and its adaptation to the exigencies of the times and the wants of the public:
FROM EX. GOV. WILLIAM H. SEWARD.
"I believe your work will be extensively useful, and think I cannot be mistaken in advising its publication under an expectation that it will be of much service to land owners and to the public."
FROM THE HON. ALFRED CONKLING, U. S. D. C.
"I cannot doubt that an accurate summary of the Statute regulations in the States northwest of the Ohio, concerning the execution, attestation, acknowledgment and recording of deeds, wills of real estate, descents, land taxes and redemptions, is a desideratum, and would be found highly convenient and useful to the profession, as well as to non-resident land owners."
FROM THE HON. MILLARD FILLMORE.
"Such a work is wanted not only by the legal profession of this State, but by many business men having commerce or dealings in the States noticed. Such a manual would furnish just the information which persons interested in western lands desire. It would also be valuable in each of the several States, from the Statutes of which the compilation is made, by furnishing to citizens of each a knowledge of the laws in the other States."
FROM THE HON. FREEBORN G. JEWETT, N. Y. S. C.
"I do not hesitate to express my opinion that a publication containing an accurate summary of the Statute regulations in Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan and Wisconsin, concerning conveyances, wills, land taxes and redemptions, cannot fail to be highly convenient and valuable, as well to the legal profession as to men having property or dealing in the said States."
