PREFACE.

On lately retiring, after half a century's practice of the Law, my companions, in Grand Divan assembled, bound me over to complete for their use a Repertory of Good Things relating to our common profession, which I had long been preparing, and of which they had read and heard snatches. These presents” contain this fond memorial of departed joys. There are many favourite sayings, standard illustrations, golden sentences, exploits of legal heroes, jests, explanations of curious and memorable doctrines and incidents, which make up the “nataral history” of the Lawyer Tribe. I have with great care selected and assorted these, and trust they will be found to amuse, if not edify, Lawyers, as well as their numerous Clients.
