Excerpt from The Institutes of Justinian: With Notes

I have inserted most of Harris's notes, citing him where I have done so but they are few and meagre. I have generally consulted the paraphrase of Theoph ilua, the short comments to the Corpus J uris Civilis of Gothofred, the translations and notes of Ferriere, Wood's Institutes, and Taylor's Elements of the Civil Law. I would gladly have procured, if I could, more sources of information, and I have taken much pains for that purpose, but in vain. The want of books has not been the only difiiculty I have met with. All the notes and references I had collected were consumed by fire on my road from N orthumberland hither, last November. An accident afterwards deprived me of my eye-sight for about a week, and render ed exertion painful to me for a considerable time. I could ill spare these defalca fions from the occasional leisure which my Chemical Lectures allowed me, but I have endeavored to make the best use of the opportunities that remained.
