LONDON, Printed by the Assigns of Richard and Edward Atkins Esquires, for Charles Harper at the Flower de Luce over against St. Dunstans-Church in Fleetstreet, 1700.

TO THE READER.

THAT a New Book of this kind should come forth after so ma­ny already extant, some may wonder, who do not consider, that Presi­dents grow Obsolete, and New ones are made according to new Laws, or as the Notions of Men become more refined.

Of the First Sort, is a Bargain and Sale of Goods distrained for Rent, pag. 329. which with the Notes thereupon are a good direction how to proceed upon the late Act, impowring Land-Lords to sell Distresses for Rent, &c.

Of the Second Sort, are many never before Extant, and whereof every one is manifold more worth than the Price of the whole Book.

These Presidents being collected only for private Ʋse, without any design of being made publick, have most of them been lately executed, and undergone the Inspection and Perusal of Counsel learn­ed in the Law. They are not all placed in Alphabetical Order, there being no need of such placing of them; because there is put before them an exact Table of what is contained in the Book.

The first Impression hereof having met with so kind a Reception, and been so well approved of by the Ingenious, that it was sold in a short time, hath en­couraged the Author, for the publick Good, to make an Addition of several very useful Presidents of both sorts to this second Edition, never before Pub­lished, whereby the said Book is rendred much more useful and beneficial to the Candid and Ingenious Reader, which is the sole end and design of the Author.
