A Book About Lawyers (fiscle Part-XI)

A Law-Student Of The Present Day Finds It Difficult To Realize The
Brightness And Domestic Decency Which Characterized The Inns Of Court In
The Sixteenth, Seventeenth, And Eighteenth Centuries. Under Existing
Circumstances, Women Of Character And Social Position Avoid The Gardens
And Terraces Of Gray'S Inn And The Temple.

Attended By Men, Or Protected By Circumstances That Guard Them From
Impertinence And Scandal, Gentlewomen Can Without Discomfort Pass And
Repass The Walls Of Our Legal Colleges; But In most Cases A Lady Enters
Them Under Conditions That Announce Even To Casual Passers The Object Of
Her Visit. In her Carriage, During the Later Hours Of The Day, A
Barrister'S Wife May Drive Down The Middle Temple Lane, Or Through The
Gate Of Lincoln'S Inn, And Wait In king'S Bench Walk Or New Square,
Until Her Husband, Putting aside Clients And Papers, Joins Her For The
Homeward Drive. But Even Thus Placed, Sitting in her Carriage And
Guarded By Servants, She Usually Prefers To Fence Off Inquisitive Eyes
By A Bonnet-Veil, Or The Blinds Of Her Carriage-Windows.
