"In preparing the following Digest, brevity and convenience of use have been kept in view, rather than perfection of arrangement as a mere work of art; and the object of the compiler will be fully attained if he has succeeded in placing before the Profession of the State a convenient Index to the books of Reports....
"Seventeen volumes of Reports are embraced in this Digest; all of them official and authoritative, being prepared by Reporters appointed by the Courts under authority of law."
