Examples might be added to the amount of volumes upon
volumes: but from these few, as effectually satisfactorily sufficiently as from any number
of such volumes, the following conclusions, may, it should seem it is supposed be
deduced.

1. That for various purposes it is of importance that the distinction
between matter of law and matter of fact should be
clearly apprehended, and the departure carefully made and
kept up. ☞ Here enumerate the purposes.

2. That in real i.e. Statute law the distinction is
readily made apprehended, the separation easily made and kept up.

3. That in under a compleat and well composed body of statutory law civil and penal
if compleat as it might be and ought to be no question of law
could arise other than what was grounded in some or
more of the words and phrases contained in it.

4. That in the penning of such a body of law one of the objects
should be to use such so to order the words and phrases of it
that under it the number of questions of law manually
raised out of it may be as small as possible.

of law should spring out of them, and in order to fix the impost and
settle the application of them, an explanation of each such word
given once for all should be inserted in consigned to some part or other of the
code.
