Description

Excerpt from A Treatise on the Law of Adulterine Bastardy: With a Report of the Banbury Case, and of All Other Cases Bearing Upon the Subject Of his own opinions on the Law on the subject it would ill become him to speak in so prominent a part of the volume, were it not that his labours have convinced him, not only of the correctness of Lord Coke's exposition, but of the sound policy of the Law, after it became so far modified as to abandon the rule of the quatuor maria, while it required evidence of the absolute impossibility of the husband's being the father of his wife's child, from whatever cause that impossibility might arise, instead of making the impossibility depend solely upon corporeal infirmity, or geographical limits.
