PREFACE.

The object of this book is to bring into convenient form the laws of the United States concerning American ships, and shipping in American waters, with the official regulations under which these laws are enforced, and vessels in American harbors are controlled.

Brief notes of decisions construing the statutes are given beneath the sections, and reference is made to the author's “Manual of Shipping and Admiralty,” in which the results of the decisions of English and American courts are very tersely stated.

The latter volume having been favorably received by the Bench and Bar, it is hoped that this book may find equal favor with shipping and commercial men, and be of some value to their legal counsellors.

ROBERT DESTY.
