The Analysis contains the Acts relating to the Company to the close of the Session in May 1826. The Acts which have been passed since that time, more particularly those during the last Session of Parliament, are so important as regards India generally, that the present mode is adopted, for the purpose of placing them in a collected form before the Public, with a brief statement to each enactment, as in the Analysis, of its origin and

purport. It was suggested that a second edition of the work might have been prepared, so as to combine the whole in one volume; but neither the labour which it would have required, nor the time which it must have occupied, could be devoted to it at the present moment. The indulgence which has been extended to the work is sensibly acknowledged; and in the event of circumstances permitting another edition, the various suggestions which have been thrown out, and which are fully appreciated, will be most readily adopted.
