An Upright Man

ERSKINE was once retained for a Mr. Bolt, whose character was impugned

by Mr. Mingay, the counsel on the other side. Gentlemen, said Erskine,

in reply, the plaintiff's counsel has taken unwarrantable liberties

with my client's good name, representing him as litigious and unjust. So

far, however, from this being his character, he goes by the name of

Bolt upright.
