In the research made for the writing of this comment it was gratifying to find that the decisions are not in conflict. The law pertaining to annexation was firmly established at an early date and has remained somewhat constant, despite the formidable array of confusion and uncertainty in other phases of municipal law.

The following exposition on annexation attempts (I) to recapitulate the law as it exists in Georgia, (2) to consider the applicable statutory provisions, and (3) to conjecture as to the effect of recent decisions by the State Supreme Court collaterally affecting annexation. The attempt last mentioned will be given particular emphasis, because of its importance as a practical matter.
