WESTERN LEGAL OBSERVER.
JANUARY, 1849.
PREFACE EDITORIAL.
The Editor, having been repeatedly solicited by members of
the profession in thisState to undertake the management of a
law journal, has finally been induced to try the experimefit.
In coming to this conclusion, he has satisfied himself that a
work of this character can be sustained in this section of the
great Mississippi Valley, if the proper spirit is manifested by
the Bar. Upon the exhibition of such a spirit, he confidently
relies. If his expectations on this score have not been too
sanguine, the work shall not fail from a want of proper ex-
ertion on his part ; if they have been, the natural result must
follow-a discontinuance of the publication. One year will
afford some evidence whether it can be sustained, and it
will be published'for that period, at least.
The first number is now submitted to the profession, not as
a specimen of its future character, for we hope to make it
better. We send it forth almost without a premonition, for
circumstances have prevented that preparation we would
otherwise have desired. But it will, we trust, serve to con-
vey an idea of what its intended character will be. Here-
after, each number will probably contain one or more origi-
nal articles and reports of cases not previously published
elsewhere.
