THE LEGAL REMEDY; OR, THE BEAUTIES OF GOING TO LAW; AS ILLUSTRATED IN THE FAMOUS CASE OF PILKINGTON VS. POPSQUIRT. BY THE AUTHOR OF "MY MOTHER'S GOLD RING," &C. &C.

Boston: Redding and Company, 1849. Original printed wrappers, stitched, 24pp. With a humorous frontis, captioned, "What Befell Mrs. Pilkington." Several old rubberstamps; otherwise a clean text. Good+.

A tale illustrating the tendency of litigation to create tempests from teapots. Sargent concludes: "What money and labor are annually sacrificed in the litigious pursuit of that, which is not worth pursuing-- for the winning of that, which is not worthy of being won!" The plethora of litigation is caused by "the bad temper of clients, and the greediness of pettifoggers."
