Excerpt from Conditional and Future Interests: And Illegal Conditions and Restraints; In Illinois

This book was written to carry out the object mentioned in the dedication.

To accomplish this, it was necessary, first, to gain some command over those fundamental problems in the law of future interests, of which Professor Gray is so great a master; and secondly, to classify and arrange the Illinois cases with reference to these problems, and to check them up with the best solutions which have anywhere been offered.

The first step was taken with the aid of the 5th and part of the 6th volume of Gray's Cases on Property, the notes to those cases taken in Professor Gray's course at the Harvard Law School, Gray's Rule against Perpetuities, the same learned author's Restraints on Alienation, and several of his law Review Articles, and finally, most prized of all, a correspondence with Professor Gray extending over several months in 1904 and 1905, relating for the most part, to the application of the Rule against Perpetuities to gifts to classes. It is hoped that the notes to the text in this volume will indicate that other standard sources of information with regard to the law of future interests and its history, have not been neglected.

The second line of effort has followed this course: Ah the Illinois cases on future interests, collected by a careful index search of vols. 1 to 213 inclusive of Supreme Court Reports, and vols. 1 to 112 inclusive of Appellate Court Reports, were first abstracted. In doing this special care was taken to get at the exact points decided, to separate decision from dicta, and to note the reasons upon which both were founded. By means of these abstracts the cases were grouped according to the subject matter of the chapters and sub-sections of the 5th and part of the 6th volume of Gray's Cases on Property.
