From the Preface: The following work was originallyundertaken with a view to enable the author to acquire acompetent knowledge of the laws of Spain, which oncegoverned Louisiana, and which still form the basis of largeportions of its jurisprudence. (...) The recent acquisitionof California and New Mexico will probably render the workat present of some practical utility to the legalprofession; and the author also entertains the hope that itmay be of some use even to men of business havinig dealingswith the republics of South America.
