OF LINCOLN'S-INN, HARRISTER AT LAW.

* Our Law in this and many other respects corresponds rather with the middle age of Roman
Jurisprudence, when Liherty, Learning, and

Humanity, were in their full vigour, than with the
cruel Edicts that were established in the dark and tyrannical ages of the ancient Decemviri or
the later Emperors.”- Blackstone's Comm. vol. iv. p. 151.

"The Pleadings of the Parties are in this Action much to be heeded, for the
Plaintiff or Defendant either of them in this may, by his Omission or Commission,
very quickly advantage or prejudice himself, and, therefore, they must be very
careful herein."-Sheppard. Actions for Slander, p. 260.
