INTRODUCTION.

The object of the Author, in presenting these Tales to the Public, has been to illustrate some striking defects of our jurisprudence. If in the accomplishment of this plan, he shall have succeeded in combining amusement with profit, his aim will be crowned with reward, and the task of arranging his narratives amply repaid.

April, 1832.

• Since the Tale of “Forgery" was written, the capital punishgment lately awarded against that crime, has been repealed, except

in cases of forging Wills and Powers of Attorney.
