Mark 7:31

Any one associated with Lord Aberdeen might always rest assured that he was safe in his hands. When our law did not allow prisoners the benefit of counsel, it was commonly said that the judge was counsel for the prisoner. Lord Aberdeen was always counsel for the absent. Doubtless he had pondered much upon the law, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. It had entered profoundly into his being, and formed a large part of it.

Gladstone, quoted in Morley's Life, II. pp. 639, 640).
