Excerpt
We now return to the metropolis of New-England. Horace Seymour had at last entirely regained his strength, and was once more entering upon the hopes, wishes, and daily occupations of the busy world. Nor had the interim of his indisposition disqualified him from pursuing those studies in which he most delighted. Having just graduated at Harvard University, he had entered as a law student in his uncle's office, where, under the guidance of Mr. Wilmer, he was making as rapid progress as was possible in those days when Blackstone was not by to smooth the rugged road to the Bar. What was wanted, however, in facilities, was amply made up by perseverance and industry; and students who were in the least degree ambitious of eminence, were contented to abide by the lucubrationes viginti annorum of Coke, amidst the musty tomes of black-letter Norman French, and the not most elegant Latin of the text-books. A seven years' clerkship was then indispensable to a knowledge of the mere outlines of the Common Law of England; and when a young man was so fortunate as to meet with such a guide as Mr. Wilmer, it may be truly said that his education commenced on the day of his entering the Law office.
