Excerpt from A Treatise on the Civil Jurisdiction of a Justice of the Peace, in the State of New York
The continual errors which many justices run into, in their proceedings, under the law which confers their Civil jurisdic tion. Prove that they want an explanation of that law in their hands. It is impossible that it should be otherivise. A law of such magnitude cannot carry every exposition on its breast. The very terms of art made use of, have called forth folios of explanation and comment, applicable to our higher tribunals; and volumes have been written to explain and il lustrate questions of not more diﬂiculty, than those which oc cur every day in justices' courts. Men of the first profession al abilities, do not agree in every point much less are we to expect a uniformity of opinion from men unaccustomed to lee gal investigation. Such men, however, are, in the contempla tion of the legislature, to carry this law into effect. Lawyers obtain knowledge from books, and justices would be more than men, if they could acquire it in any other way.
