Wythe to St. George Tucker, 22 April 1774
George Wythe tells St. George Tucker that he should let his client know of any errors in the case that he could take advantage of. Wythe says that Tucker is not restrained by any agreement that says he cannot give the information.
I think your client ought to be informed of any error in the proceeding which he may take advantage of; nor do I see how, you are restrained from giving that information by an agreement to which your were not a party, and presently have resolved not to accede. The general court, regardless of such agreements, have reversed the judgments in all cases where the declarations have not been filed. I am
Sincerely your well wisher
