CERTIFICATE OF APPROVAL. .
NEW YORK, September 2, 1884. THE GILBERT BOOK CO., St. Louis, Mo.:
I have examined the rejected cases relating to Corporations, furnished to me by Mr. Myer as having been under consideration for the Federal Decisions, and certify without hesitation that they are not of sufficient importance to appear in full, either under CORPORATIONS or any other title. Most of them adjudge questions purely local, or peculiar to some one Corporation, and do so without enunciating any general principle. Many narrate long statements of fact, copying documents in full, and simply decide rights of parties without reasons or authorities. Some state a principle, but it is avowedly taken at second hand from leading cases which are given in full. Others have been affirmed or reversed, and the authoritative decision is given in full; or have been rendered obsolete by changes which have taken place since they were decided. Whatever greins of legal principle can be winnowed from any of them will appear in the digest portions of the work; the text should not be incumbered with the full reports. Mr. Myer's manuscript bears abundant evidence that the cases have been carefully read, and their value deliberately and judiciously estimated.
