THE

PREFACE.

FRO

ROM the number of books which contain the fcience of our law, and the numerous applica tions to perfons converfant therein, for advice concerning the title to real and personal estate in cafes of inteftacy; it is indifputably clear that no felection could be made from the venerable pile of law-learning, more immediately useful, than that which relates to the eftates of perfons dying inteftate; 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 laft wills and teftaments; and in the latter, as 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 obfcuring the fenfe, has added the English to the one, and explained the meaning of the other; laying down the whole with fuch clearness and perfpicuity, as to render the fame perfectly intelligible and eafy of comprehenfion to thofe unacquainted with the fyftem of our law, or the phrases commonly used by writers thereon.
