    Denying an intention to make his audience of lawyers natural philosophers, the writer observes that contemporary 'Science, like a Vauxhall ham, is spread over a wonderfully extensive surface' and urges that attorneys should not be left 'without a mouthful of the ham of science'. Adding that 'Chemistry smoothes the way to its most elaborate laboratories' and knowledge of 'mysterious drugs', implores lawyers to 'taste of everything, from physic to philosophy'. (208)
