4548. LAWYERS, Monarchy and.—

join in your reprobation of our * * * lawyers, for their adherence to England and
monarchy, in preference to their own country
and its Constitution. * * * They have,
in the mother country, been generally the
firmest supporters of the free principles of
their constitution. But there, too, they have
changed. I ascribe much of this to the substitution
of Blackstone for my Lord Coke, as
an elementary work.—
To Horatio G. Spafford. Washington ed. vi, 334.
(M. 1814)
