Haphazard Sir Abraham

The great London lawyer and Attorney-General whom Mr. Harding consulted in the Hiram’s Hospital case. (TheWarden)

He was consulted as to the legality of Sir Roger Scatcherd’s will. (Doctor Thorne)

"Sir Abraham was a man of wit, and sparkled among the brightest.... Indeed he always sparkled ...coruscations flew from him; glittering sparkles, as from hot steel; but no heat; no cold heart was ever cheered by warmth from him, no unhappy soul ever dropped a portion of its burden at his door" - The Warden
