The author, identified at the end as 'P.', argues that "the physical toils now exacted from the Judges are of so exhausting a description as entirely to supersede the exercise of the necessary mental labours." They travel "incessant circuits, leaving them but little of the necessary leisure for research." Indeed, they are "incessantly in the harness." Describing the schedule of the weary judges, the author fears that, "Our Judges will find out, before very long, if they have not already made the discovery, that they are in retrograde career... The melancholy result of this will be the forfeiture of all respect for a court, or courts, which prove unequal to the proper and able discharge of their duties." He makes several proposals for court reorganization and expenditures.
