Excerpt from Practice of the Criminal Law of Scotland

I have now the satisfaction of laying before the Pub lie the Second and concluding Part of my undertaking, which embraces all that is treated of in the last Volume of Mr Hume's Commentaries, with the great additions made to those branches of the Criminal Law, by the numerous statutes which have been passed, and the extended prac tice which has taken place since the first publication of that valuable Work.

Many subjects there discussed at length, have, from the change of the times, now in agreat degree gone into desuetude; while other branches have swelled out, from the multiplication of decisions, to a very considerable ex tent. It will be found, accordingly, that nearly one half of the present Volume is occupied with the subjects Of Indictment and Parole Proof; the two branches of Cri minal Law which are most frequently the subject of practice. But notwithstanding this great increase of these subjects, I hope that the other Chapters contain every thing that is of utility in business, in the present state of our Criminal Jurisprudence.
