limited by law, for the return of certificates, it is presumed
to do so upon the particular circumstances of the case, and
that indulgence no way affects the rule as to other cases.
Without derogating, then, in any manner, from the respect
due to the acts of the legislature, under whatever title they
may be promulgated, I presume that I may leave what
concerns the resolutions on this general ground. If it was
absolutely requisite that any of them should have been noticed,
further than they actually have been, as forming a part of the
standing regulations of the office, it has escaped my
attention. If other matters should also be discovered to have
been overlooked, even after some notice of them had been
promised, the peculiar circumstances which have attended the
preparation, and also the publication, of this work must be
my excuse.

    I have now gone through the system which it was
proposed to examine, and which consists, in the abstract, in the
institution of surveys and resurveys by warrant from the land
office; in the execution of those warrants, and in passing
titles by public grant to the land surveyed. I have noticed
every kind of operation and proceeding connected with these
general designs, and have given a faithful account of every
thing that, on a very laborious research, I have been able to
discover relative to the principles and rules by which those
proceedings are governed. To have performed this in a
perfect manner, it would perhaps have been requisite that the
system itself should be more perfect, and more uniformly
conducted: but, at all events, it has been done as well as my
capacity and means of information would permit. Here,
therefore, I shall close my account of the history and practice
of the land office.
