Note 140
From Chapter 58 of the Decline & Fall

For the intelligence of this obscure and obsolete jurisprudence (c. 80 - 111) I am deeply indebted to the friendship of a learned lord, who, with an accurate and discerning eye, has surveyed the philosophic history of law. By his studies, posterity might be enriched: the merit of the orator and the judge can be felt only by his contemporaries.
