“Lunch” is all Rabb would say as he walked by my office. The partners were going to lunch and I was invited. For a young lawyer, lunch with the partners was an anticipated part of the day.
For the four-man Vincennes law firm of Emison Emison & Doolittle, “lunch” was one hour, more or less, most days of the week, where interesting persons discussed a multitude of topics. Though all four lawyers usually attended, it was not a requirement. In fact, to me, it was a privilege that came with being a member of the firm.
