The Diary Of An Old Lawyer

The Diary Of An Old Lawyer or Scenes Behind the Curtain by John Hallum, published by Southwestern Publishing House 1895.   John Hallum recounts his ancestory, youth, move to Memphis and his various experiences as a lawyer as well as recollections of many people who crossed his paths both friend and foe.  I have copied and published pages 159, 160 and 161 which you will find under the Lee Family Members tab Family Portrait sub-page for James Lee Jr.  His recounting of the story where my great grandfather James Lee pranked him is quite humorous.  This would have occurred sometime during the Federal occupation of Memphis.
