Excerpt from Miscellanies, Critical, Imaginative, and Juridical, 1855, Vol. 1 of 2: Contributed to Blackwood's Magazine
These volumes contain such of the Author's contributions to Blackwood's Magazine, as appeared to deal with subjects of general, intrinsic, and permanent interest and importance. Most of them were originally written with a view to subsequent separate publication; and some have cost the Author great pains, alike in the writing and revision.
The paper, however, entitled "The Mystery of Murder, and its Defence," did not appear in Blackwoods Magazine, but in the quarterly Law Review, and is included in these "Miscellanies," for reasons stated in a note subjoined to the commencement of the paper.
