When one considers what a life of exertion he has led for these last twenty years; how his powers have been kept on the rack such a length of time with writing, and concocting, and editing reviews on the one hand, and briefs, and speeches, and journeys, and trials, and cross--questionings, and the whole labyrinth of barristership on the other--one cannot help being quite thunderstruck on finding that he has still reserved such a large fund of energy which he can afford and delight to lavish, when even the comparative repose of his mind would be more than enough to please and satisfy every one.
Yet this same hard labor (five-plus years of toiling at the legal profession) results in a different pot of gold: a barristership and the eventual winning of a major case.
