The massive Digest, printed in two columns per page, has "placed under appropriate titles the Laws; and to every Act, public or private, he has annexed in the margin, notes containing the substance of each section of the laws; and he has also made frequent notes, by way of reference, to such acts as are repealed, amended, altered, &c." The Digest is organized alphabetically by subject; after page 488, a Digest of the Resolutions of the Georgia House and Senate is printed.
