Can we identify the details/source of the Kent quote under the legal sense (apart from Webster 1913 which cites it)? If not, perhaps it's best removed? (Aabull2016 (talk) 20:33, 16 July 2016 (UTC))

This looks like the quote, but it's not attributed to any Kent. I don't think it's from Commentaries on American Law. DTLHS (talk) 20:42, 16 July 2016 (UTC)
