Excerpt from The Albany Law Journal, Vol. 37: A Weekly Record of the Law and the Lawyers; From January, 1888, to July, 1888
During a short visit to Scotland last summer I took occasion to look into the Scotch courts. There I saw so much to interest me that I ventured to ask one of the gentlemen whose acquaintance I had the pleasure to make, Mr. Henry Goudy, a prominent advocate, to give me a short sketch of Scotch meth ods of administering justice. He was good enough to do me this favor, and gave me the following, which I send to you, hoping that it may interest you and your readers as much as it did me. Per haps also it may cause seine self-reproach to our own bar, the bar not only of New York but of other States, to see how much quicker our Scottish brethren deal out justice to their people than we do to ours.
