Judie Estat Obs Tit. VII. B — at th District Court of Appeal


Where If the opinion of this Judge of Appeal and
the opinion of the pauper's own sworn advocate is
against him; I look upon it as infinitely more
likely that he a poor and consequently ignorant
man should be in the wrong than that they should:
But in a cause which happens to be especially
if the decision has of this Court of Appeal has
been confirmative of that of the immediate Court
below. But if party be at all concerned in the
cause the Public Advocate of the pauper being a
Public Advocate may be suspected of collusion, and
he and the Judge together of oppressive views: the
party therefore ought to be allowed to give themselves
the satisfaction of taking sending it out of their hands: and
when such is the view, the small sum necessary
can never be wanting.

Were it not for some such this check, a pauper would
be sure to go on from appeal to appeal, whether
he had or had not merits: some if he lost each time
he would but be where he was.

A man may be allowed and ought to be allowed
to throw away his own money, but not to throw
away the money of other men.

This principle might perhaps be applied to
appeals in t from the immediate Courts: to but I forbore
inserting articles for that purpose in the text, for fear of
burthening the plan too much with details.
