Excerpt from The Land-Holder's Assistant; And Land-Office Guide: Being an Exposition of Original Titles

As to the style of what may be called composition, in this mixed per formance, it would not be worth noticing except for the purpose of avert ing a criticism upon the familiarity and apparent egotism which may per haps be found to characterize it. On this point I will only say that what may look like egotism has proceeded, in reality, from a very different sen timent. This book is presented merely as a compilation and, in the in troductory and connecting discourses, in which the compiler has to speak in his own person, I have not thought myself entitled to use the formal style of an author, but, speaking also as a public officer, I have pursued that unstudied mode of expression which I should use if called upon, in that character, to explain the proceedings of my office. So many things, moreover, are advanced upon my own observation or opinion, and the weight attached to them is so directly referable to the source from Which they proceed, that it would have been difficult to keep my self, in any des gree, out of view, and therefore I have not attempted it.

In regard to the matter of this compilation, I have fulfilled, I believe, literally, all that was promised in my prospectus, except in the article of conveyance, concerning which I have only inserted a few laws, without at tempting any comment upon them, and have omitted the forms, which would have swelled the book to an inconvenient size, and encreased the expence (already far beyond my original calculation) so as to leave no chance of remuneration for my labour. Ihave substituted what appeared more to the purpose, and this, with the further consideration that I have greatly exceeded the number of pages proposed, will, I trust, be accept ed as an equivalent.
