The defendant's next contention is that the plaintiff had failed to pay the taxes on the land and interest on the advances for the sixth house. So far as the unpaid taxes are concerned the jury, under the charge of the presiding judge, could not find for the plaintiff without finding that the defendant had been put in funds by the plaintiff to pay those taxes and that interest. The defendant never had asked for an accounting to fix the amount to be secured by mortgage for advances on the sixth house, and until that was done no interest on that sum could be said to be in default. It would seem pretty clear that the reason for the defendant's putting this off was because he had not discharged, and did not wish to discbarge, the attachments as he had agreed to do. The last argument is that there is no evidence that the plaintiff's willingness to give the other mortgage ever was communicated to the defendant. On the evidence already stated we are of opinion that the jury were warranted in finding that it was impliedly, if not expressly, communicated to him. Exceptions overruled.
