PREFACE

4 Feb. 1789.

TO THE FIRST EDITION.

THE many modern determinations upon the Law of Bills and Notes, and the importance of an intimate acquaintance with the principles of those determinations, is a sufficient apology for an attempt to collect and methodize them. In the following attempt, what are commonly stiled Bills of Exchange, Cash Bills, and Promissory Notes, are considered together; for a Cash Bill is as much a Bill of Exchange as any Inland Bill, and a Note after transfer is in legal operation a complete Bill, and must therefore have, when first made, the same essential qualities with Bills.
