Excerpt from The Canadian Legal Directory: A Guide to the Bench and Bar of the Dominion of Canada
The want of some such work as the Editor has sought to supply in the present volume, has, especially since Confederation, and the creation of a Supreme and Exchequer Court for the Dominion, been very much felt, not only by members of the legal profession, judicial officers, and others having connection with Law and the Courts, but also by a no inconsiderable portion of the general public. The Editor has endeavoured to meet the want, with what success it will be for the subscribers to the work to determine. A great mass of names and facts have been brought together in a small compass, the procuring of which has cost the Editor more time and trouble than many people will be inclined to give him credit for. The obtaining of information in the Maritime Provinces - where there seems to be an almost entire absence of Indexing or Registration to the Public Records - was most difficult and vexatious. Where, in these Provinces, the reader observes that the book is deficient in names and dates, the omission must be set down to the right cause - ah utter impossibility of obtaining the desired informa tion. Such as it is, the canadian legal directory, as the first attempt at bringing the Bench and the Bar of the Dominion and of the several Provinces thereof under one cover, will, it is hoped, be found to be of service, and calculated to advance the best interests of the pro fession in Canada. The Editor finds himself under many lasting obli gations to leading members of the Bar throughout the country, for assistance of various kinds, to one and all of whom he tenders his warmest thanks and acknowledgments.
