iv PREFACE TO THE SECOND EDITION.

The Statute De Bigumis, 1 Jac. 1, c. 11, was omitted in the
original edition. It was held to be in force in Barber v. State,
50 Md. 161, and is now included.

The Statutes, 3 W. & M. c. 9 s. 4, 1 Anne 8tat. 2 c. 9 s. 2 and 5
Anne c. 31 ss. 5, 6, dealing with the offence of receiving stolen
goods, were omitted in the original edition. They were con-
sidered in State v. Hodges, 55 Md. 127, but they were certainly
not there held to be iu force, and in any case the matter
appears to be covered by our own statute on the subject. They
have, therefore, been omitted in this edition also.

The Statute, 25 Geo. 2, c. 6, invalidating devises and legacies
to attesting witnesses of -wills, is given in the original edition.
Doubtless none of its sections are now in force, but it is in-
cluded here for the peas-sou stated in the note thereto.

An entirely new index to the notes has been prepared for
this edition by Mr. Samuel Want of the Baltimore bar.

WARD BALDWIN COE.
Baltimore, March, 1912.
