THE SENATORS OF THE COLLEGE OF JUSTICE;

My LORDS.

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,

My Lords,

YOUR LORDSHIPS'

Most obedient humble Servant,

W. ALEXANDER.
