" These are in some ways the intellectual ancestors of the scam bloggers. "

Actually, Barry, no. You misunderstood my post. Those are separate ideas. Not everyone writing in the Virginia University Magazine was a supporter of slavery -- nor was George Tucker for that matter. But whether in some instances those who wrote about the problems with lack of jobs for young lawyers in the nineteenth century supported slavery or not has no bearing on whether law was a good career choice at that time.
