the partnership has had appears to have two evident objects: 1. oppressing the debtor;
2. cheating the creditor.

Not that either of those was the an ultimate object: unless
here and there perhaps collaterally and in virtue of the principle
of association, as the enjoyment of the cat is heightened
by the suffering pangs and convulsions of the mouse. But both afflictions were
in the character of co-effects inseparably connected with
the real and ultimate objects, profit and ease.
