There are many subjects besides those treated in this book upon which the different women's organizations may desire information, but it has been thought wiser for the present to restrict the scope of this work to the statutes which affect more directly and particularly the women and children of the Province. Should it be found that this volume serves a useful purpose, there may be opportunity for short, popular treatises dealing with other subjects of public interest in our statutes.
