ROM the number of books which contain the
science of our law, and the numerous applican tions to persons conversant therein, for advice concerning the title to real and personal estate in cases of intestacy; it is indisputably clear that no felection could be made from the venerable pile of law-learning, more immediately useful, than that which relates to the estates of persons dying intestate ; and of this the author being well convinced, was led to select the first part of this work; to which fince it was published, he has made very confiderable additions, and copiously treated on the law relative to last wills and teftaments; and in the latter, aš well as his former proceedings, hath endeavoured to avoid the technical terms of the law; and when the Latin words, or those terms, have occurred, and could not be avoided without obscuring the sense, has added the English to the one, and explained the meaning of the other ; laying down the whole with such clearness and perspicuity, as to render the same perfe&ly intelligible and easy of comprehension to those unacquainted with the system of our law, or the phrases commonly used by writers thereon.
