Excerpt from The Life and Adventures of a Limb of the Law

The law was originally designed for the furtherance of justice and the preservation of right, or, in other words, to [protect the innocent, and secure punishment to the guilty; but when instances daily occur of the very reverse of these principles prevailing, in the defeat of the honest man's claim, and in the rescinding of com tracts which parties entered into with their eyes open, either through the dexterity of counsel in discovering what is vulgarly termed a ?aw, or from non-confon mity with some of those absurd Forms that have been handed down to us from time immemorial, and conse crated by use, an inference may fairly be drawn that the law has been perverted to uses for which it was never intended; and, instead of being a sta?' to the ia~ nocent and a terror to the guilty, it has thrown its shield around the dishonest and unprincipled portion of the community, for whose correction and punish ment it was intended.
