It is your duty as a magistrate

Victor, we should remind ourselves, comes from a long line of magistrates (see, e.g., I:1:1), and he has quite recently been on trial himself with the magistrate Mr. Kirwan leading his defence; so therefore it is clear that he perfectly well knows what their duties are. To state them so boldly to this judge requires something of his father's authority.
