Excerpt from A Digest of the Law of Evidence
This third English edition has been carefully revised, corrected to a considerable extent, changed in its arrange ment, and, to some extent, enlarged by the addition of new matter by the author in the light of the criticisms made upon the first and second editions, and his reﬂections thereupon. The purpose of the editor has been to adapt the work to the use of the American student and lawyer. To this end he has brieﬂy noticed those points in which the American authorities differ, both amongst themselves and from the English authorities. To some extent, he has added new illustrations from American cases, which seemed to him to be sufficiently apt to warrant their in sertion; though he has generally preferred, rather than to swell the size of the volume, to refer to those sections of Greenleaf from which, through Mr. Taylor, the illustrations selected by the author have been to a considerable ex tent taken. In the sections of Greenleaf thus referred to will be found numerous cases, both English and American, as pertinently illustrative of the author's propositions as most of those selected. For greater convenience, the cases cited by the editor nearly or quite equal in num ber to those cited by the author have been incorporated in the same Table.
