4987. MANSFIELD (Lord), Decisions of.—

I hold it essential, in America, to forbid
that any English decision which has happened
since the accession of Lord Mansfield to the
bench, should ever be cited in a court; because,
though there have come many good
ones from him, yet there is so much poison
instilled into a great part of them, that it is
better to proscribe the whole.—
To Mr. Cutting. Washington ed. ii, 487.
(P. 1788)
