Abstract:

"It is not intended that this book should be a biography of lawyers. Their achievements, their virtues and their errors, must be left to other writers. All that is here intended is to record such sayings and happenings as may be counted worthy to be kept in remembrance. Incidentally, the tales herein contained may illustrate the wisdom and greatness of some of the great men of the past, but no man, however great, will have more than casual mention unless there is something more or less humorous to be told concerning him." -- introductory, page 7.
