those of which a thief already possesses a considerable number
exactly similar or hard to distinguish. Or they commit wrongs which the victims
are ashamed to disclose, such as outrages upon the women of their family, upon
themselves, or upon their children. And all those wrongs in regard to which
appeal to the law would create the appearance of litigiousness; such are wrongs
which are unimportant or venial. These are nearly all the dispositions which
induce men to commit wrong, the nature and motive of the wrongs, and the kind of
persons who are the victims of wrong.
