Excerpt from Law Made Easy: A Book for the People In my first years of practice, my business was chiefly of an advisory nature. Men and women came to me with questions on business and domestic matters, - difficult or complicated questions rarely, simple questions usually, which I could answer off-hand, wondering the while how they should need to ask. Yet a second thought always reminded me that, but a few short years before, I was far more igrant than they on those very subjects, and it was only by a long course of study that I was able to understand and explain them. This struck me as somewhat singular. Why should it be necessary to go through a full legal course in order to gain kwledge so simple in its nature, or else, pick it up slowly and painfully, by dint of hard experience - the only other alternative, as it appeared - and by paying some lawyer five dollars per question, to say thing of fees for conducting cases into which igrance is sure to plunge one sooner or later? Books there were of every possible kind on every conceivable subject, and surely there must be those which would supply the public with sufficient information on such important matters as would enable them to keep clear of the legal pitfalls which yawn before unwary feet in this busy world of ours.
