1907. Excerpt: ... APPENDIX A good lawyer always should protect the
interests of his client, provided he does not work injustice to
others. When a lawyer is employed to draw up a bond, he has it in
his power to make it more advantageous for one party than for the
other, such as by inserting express conditions to overcome those
implied by law. If he is employed by both parties, he should
endeavor to make the contract as advantageous to one as to the
other, and give to each a copy thereof. Suppose the employe of a
bank be required to give a bond. The employe might be instructed to
furnish it, or the attorney of the bank might draw up the bond, and

sureties shall not have any excuse for escaping liability. To
illustrate the difference that easily might be made in such a case,
the following forms are given, the first giving the bond presented
by the employe; the latter, the one drawn in the interests of the
bank. Form of Bond Protecting Interests of Sureties. Know All Men
