Washington Law Review


Last week I had the privilege, and so did some of the other persons here present, of attending at Philadelphia one of the greatest meetings probably ever held by the American Bar Association. There is probably no place which is more ideal, except from a weather standpoint, for holding a convention of the American Bar Association than the historic City of Philadelphia, where the Declaration of Independence was written, where the first Continental Congress met, where the Congress of the United States and the Supreme Court sat for ten years before they were removed to the District of Columbia, and where the Liberty Bell hangs, and where much of the history of American liberty has its setting.
