4235. JUSTICE, Partial.—

The public security
against a partial dispensation of justice
depends on its being dispensed by certain
rules. The slightest deviation in one
circumstance becomes a precedent for another,
that for a third, and so on without
bounds. A relaxation in a case where it is
certain no fraud is intended, is laid hold of by
others, afterwards, to cover fraud.—
To George Joy. Washington ed. iii, 130.
(N.Y., 1790)
