Quid Pro Quo

A PHYSICIAN of an acrimonious disposition, and having a thorough hatred

of lawyers, reproached a barrister with the use of phrases utterly

unintelligible. For example, said he, I never could understand what

you lawyers mean by docking an entail.--That is very likely, answered

the lawyer, but I will explain it to you: it is doing what you doctors

never consent to,--suffering a recovery.
