ON AN ILL-READ LAWYER, by                     Poet's Biography
First Line: An idle attorney besought a brother

Subject(s): Law & Lawyers


AN idle attorney besought a brother
For something to read, -- some novel or other,
That was really fresh and new.
"Take Chitty!" replied his legal friend,
"There is n't a book that I could lend
Would prove more novel to you!"
