Though it has only been recently realized, it is a proper, even a necessary, function of the modern law school to train the future lawyer both in the bare mechanics of drafting instruments and also in that finer and subtler sense of appreciation of the vast difference between a stereotyped form and the carefully wrought product of the trained legal draftsman. The present valuable little volume comes to a not overcrowded field as a means of assistance in performing that function, as well as a guide to the lawyer who has come to the bar without any adequate training in this very vital portion of his professional activity.
