    AS the editor, with an indifferent share of health, was unassisted in his irksome, tedious employment, it ws perhaps
impossible for him entirely to avoid error.  On a revision of the whole, he perceives that he has omitted
to note in his index some few of the material provisions in the laws, and some others, that may hereafter be probably
sought for.  He has likewise discovered some wrong references.  He has therefore annexed a short supplemental table;
and, at the end of it, he has noted the mistakes in his principal index.  As to errors of the press in the acts at large,
he considered the examination of those, and the comparing them with the originals of the old printed copy, as out of
his department.  But, from the singular accuracy and attention of Mr. Green, he believes, that no material error
will be therein found:  And as to the abstracts and notes, although the editor has perceived in these some trifling errata,
he did not think it worth while to point them out.
