The revision of this Work for a new Edition ha,s led me to realise more fully the uncertainties and imperfections which still exist in that portion of the law ofT orts which relates to liability for negligence. Since the date of the first Edition in 1907 judicial decision has done but little to clear away the doubts and to fill up the lacunae which exist in this department of the law, and in respect of many matters it still remains impossible to state the law with any confidence or completeness. Had the law been content to adopt the uniform principle that liability for accidental harm depended in all cases on the existence of negligence on the part of the defendant or his servants, most of the serious difficulties and complexities which now exist would have been eliminated.
