A Manual of Laws Relating to the State Board of Charity of Massachusetts

Unknown Author


Excerpt from A Manual of Laws Relating to the State Board of Charity of Massachusetts: Prepared by the Secretary of the State Board of Charity, Published by Authority of Resolves of 1913, Chapter 14, This Compilation Comprises All Status Down to and Including the Session of 1915, the Notes on Decisions Are Corrected to January, 1915

The following Manual is so arranged that the chapters of the Revised Laws dealing with the field of charity are given consecutively. Appended to each section of each of these chapters is all of the law appertaining that has been enacted since the Revised Laws were codified, in 1902. All subsequent laws that deal with the general subject of the chapter, but do not amend or repeal specific sections, appear under Additional Legislation 11 directly following the amendments.

All law presently in force appears in full-size type. All portions of the Revised Laws and subsequent acts that have been repealed, superseded or amended appear in small type. This plan is followed because, though the superseded laws are essential to the determination of many cases and must therefore appear in the Manual, there should be some mark or contrast that will readily distinguish the living statutes from the background out of which they project.

The footnotes in this volume represent a partial digest of the Massachusetts decisions bearing upon the text. They are not to be taken as authoritative, and are intended merely as a guide and reference for agents of the Board and others making use of the Manual.
