FRAUDS, STATUTE OF,
A bill of parcels in which the vendor's name is printed, delivered to the vendee at the time of an order given for the future delivery of goods, seems to be a sufficient memorandum of a contract within the Statute of Frauds. Saunderson v. Jackson, T. 40 Geo. 3. 238 2. At all events a subsequent letter, written and signed by the vendor, referring to the order, may be connected with the bill of parcels so as to take the case out of the Statute, id.
The goods of A. being taken in execution and put up to sale, B. became the purchaser, and took a bill of sale of the sheriff, but permitted A. to continue in possession; A. then executed another bill of sale of the same goods to C. a creditor, under which the latter took possession; whereupon A. brought an action against C. for the goods: Held that the first bill of sale was valid, and that A. was therefore entitled to recover, Kiddv.

ports on the coast of Portugal to join
convoy, particularly at Lisbon, at 12
guineas per cent. to return six pounds
if she sail with convoy from the coast of

from Oporto with a sloop and cutter ap-
pointed to protect the trade of that
place to Lisbon, from whence it was to
proceed with the Lisbon trade under a
larger convoy for England; in the way
from Oporto to Lisbon the fleet was dis-

I. S. demised lands to the rector of D.

lease, the rector, after covenanting for
payment of the rent, further granted
to I. S. the tithe of oats for the parish
of D.; the lease also contained a pro-
viso for re-entry, in case the rent
should be in arrear, or I. S. his heirs,
&c. should be disturbed by the rector
or his assigns in the receipt of the
tithe, and concluded with a covenant
on the part of I. S. that the rector
should quietly enjoy the lands under
the covenants, grants, and agreements
contained in the lease. After the ex-
piration of the lease, the rector con-
tinued to hold the land, but withheld
the rent for more than 20 years: the

him a bill drawn by himself upon and
accepted by C. who had effects of his

indorsed it over; the day before the
bill became due, B. paid the amount
to A., who on hearing that C. had
failed gave B. a check for the amount
of the bill and sent him with it to D.
to enable him to pay the bill when due;
four days after that time, A. learning
that payment had not been demanded
desired D. not to pay the bill, as no
notice of non-payment had been given
by the holder, and offered to indem-
nify him; notwithstanding this D. af-
terwards paid the bill: Held that D.
