Michigan

By. H. G. Wells

The chancellors of Michigan were only enough in number to furnish a. possible opportunity to contrast their respective qualifications; but fortunately no word ever attached to either, and the names of Farnsworth and Manning have been placed upon the records of the States as tried, ' able and true. Equity implies, something above the law, and the dead chancellors of Michigan, in character and standing of the profession, have given a stronger significance to the words justice and impartiality. Let me close my imperfect sketch of the judicary by naming to you Judge Solomon Sibley, to whom I presented an introductory note, at Detroit in July 1833. His head, his face, his address impressed you with with the idea that the President of the United States was not at fault when he gave him his commission as a Territorial Judge of Michigan. Long practice at the bar, service in congress as a delegate, and the able and faithful discharge of his judicial, duties make his life an important part of the history of Michigan.
