MANNER OF TREATING THE SUB JECT. The subject of Partnership can be best treated under the three parts, into which it naturally divides itself: i. The formation of partnership, or the assum ing the relations of partners. 2. The principles which rcgulate partnership during its existence. 3. The principles by which the business is wound up. Ac cordingly we shall in the present chapter treat of the formation of partnership; in the second, of the princi pies regulating partnership; and, in the third, of the dissolution of partnership.
