Excerpt from Adventures of an Attorney: In Search of Practice
Tunas is something vastly agreeable in the first day of a professional life; clerkship, servitude, and drudgery are all at an end; one no longer asks the hour, with sore consciousness of being too late for office, or dire misgivings of having been inquired for; and racking one's wits in vain for some new excuse, not yet exhausted, of gone to the Temple, examining an abstract, or serv ing a notice 1 I was in such a desperate hurry to begin, that though I had not a client nor the dream of one, and was filled with lofty ambition to do the thing well, and start with all the magni ficence of a house, I had not patience to wait.
