Contracts for building are among those most frequently made, and also among those which require the utmost care.

A specification stating and describing all the things which the parties desire and intend to have done should always accompany the contract. It is very difficult for persons not accustomed to the work to remember and specify, and properly describe, all the

things they propose to have in the building; and all these things should be accurately and precisely stated in the specification. From omissions or errors of this kind, cases and questions are constantly arising. To assist those who have to prepare for themselves or others a contract of this sort, I have given, first, a brief and simple form; I now give a very full and minute form, prepared by a skillful lawyer, and in wide use.
