This term and “appearance by counsel” are distinctly different. the former being the substitution of a legal agent for the personal attendance of the suitor, the latter the attendance of an advocate without whose aid neither the party attending nor his attorney in his stead could safely proceed ; and an appearance by attorney does not supersede the appearance by counsel. Mercer v. Watson. 1 Watts (Pa.) 351.
