Decr 1808
Evidence

Of the difference between Common Law and Equity, understand
English Law and English Equity, a short account is this:
Common Law is Law of a common sort, pretended destined or pretended to be
destined for the poor, out of whose reach it is however for
the most part . Equity is a sort of law which, under
the notion its being of a betterment sort is reserved for the rich:
reserved openly and without disguise. A short account,
and unhappily but too true a one.

An Equity Judge will he so much as profess to
do justice in a cause of less than £10 value? Not
he indeed. It is declared that he will not. Not do
justice? why? – because it is "beneath the dignity of
"the Court". Such is dignity in the eyes of an English Judge! are the notions put.

One consequence is Of this institution coupled with a one of Common Law, one consequence
is – that for any one thing of less than £10
value, no man alive has any sort of remedy.
