<p><strong>James Muscoe Matthews</strong>'s (1822-1905) <em>Digest</em> was arranged to parallel the sections of the Virginia Code. It was updated from previous versions - which were arranged alphabetically - to incorporate this new structure and to include new case law. Topics covered in Matthews's work are crimes, punishments, criminal procedure, and the governor's authority in criminal cases.</p>
