INDEX TO BOTH VOLUMES.

In the first volume, I have traced the progress of a Chancery suit, from its commencement to a decree, noticing such interlocutory matters as usually arise during that period of a cause. The present volume explains the manner in which a decree is varied or corrected, and the several proceedings necessary to satisfy the inquiries directed by it, and to bring the suit to a conclusion. In investigating these subjects, I have been led to consider the course of proceeding on a petition of appeal; or of rehearing; on an appeal to the House of Lords; on a bill of review, or on a bill in the nature of a bill of review; also the steps necessary to be taken where an issue, a case, or an action has been directed, and the proceedings of the most frequent occurrence in the Master's office, together with the manner in which a Master's report may be excepted to, or confirmed; and the suit heard on further directions. To these I have added a chapter on the practical part of the subject of an award.
