ADAM AND CHARLES BLACK;
THE RIGHT HONOURABLE THE LORD PRESIDENT,
THE RIGHT HONOURABLE THE LORD JUSTICE-CLERK,
THE SENATORS OF THE COLLEGE OF JUSTICE;
When the Lord PRESIDENT communicated to me the ap
probation of your Lordships to my proceeding with a publication of an Abridgement of the Acts of Sederunt, containing only such of them as remained in force
his Lordship did me the honour to inform me that the Court recommended that I should extend my plan, bý preparing and publishing a similar ABRIDGEMENT of the Acts of the ParliaME
MENTS of Scotland, and of the BRITISH STATUTES affecting Scotland since the Union.
I have, accordingly, now most respectfully to place before your Lordships an ABRIDGEMENT of the Scots Acts, containing verbatim the whole Statutes of the Parliaments of Scotland that appear to me to be at present in force and use, along with such notes and references as seem required.
I shall endeavour to follow out the remaining part of the suggestion of the Court as soon as possible ; and have the honour to be,
Most obedient humble Servant,
19 Windsor STREET, 14th October 1841.
