The son of a man very eminent in the legal profession was once standing in a felon's dock awaiting a sentence of transportation. Said the judge, who knew his parentage and history, "Do you remember your father?" "Perfectly," said the youth. "Whenever I entered his presence he said, 'Run away, my lad, and don't trouble me.'" The great lawyer was thus enabled to complete his great work on "The Law of Trusts;" and his son in due time furnished a practical commentary on the way in which a father had discharged the most sacred of all trusts committed to him in the person of his own child.
