<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="172912030003"/>THE Undertakers of the Sessions Paper, think proper to acquaint their Readers, That they hope no Objections will be made against its being Printed in a Size different from the former; they apprehending it will be thought much more Commodious, for the following Reasons, viz.</p>
<p>1st, By this Method, there will be more Room to enlarge upon Trials, they, being resolv'd (with all Regard to the Court) to have each Proceeding related in the fullest and clearest Manner, both with Respect to the Crime, the Evidence, and the Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>2dly, It is designed always, to be carefully and correctly. Printed, on a good Letter and Paper, so as to make it really worth Six Pence, beyond which it is never intended to be Rated, even when a Sessions happens to be larger than Ordinary.</p>
<p>3dly, By this Method, it will be in every ones Power to preserve them clean to the end of the Year, when there shall be an Alphabetical Index to the whole; so that by Binding them up together, they will have a Handsome Volume, and a Complete Annual Register of these Proceedings, and thereby make it, not worth any ones while to Reprint them in Volumes, which has been done at extraordinary Rates, and which could only be necessary, by the Destraction of those Printed on bad Paper, and in the Sheet Size; thus also, the Expence of twice Purchasing the same Accounts will be avoided.</p>
<p>These Proceedings shall be Published with the atmost Dispatch after the finishing of each Session; and as it is designed to give all possible Satisfaction in the Conduct and Management, so it is not doubted, but it will have the Countenance and the Encouragement of the Publick.</p>
