Страница 304 - When any person having title to any real estate of inheritance shall die intestate as to such estate, it shall descend and pass in parcenary to such of his kindred, male and female, as are not alien enemies, in.
Страница 98 - ... considered as contracting with reference to it, is considered to form part of every policy, designed to protect risks in such trade, unless the express terms of the policy decisively repel the inference.
Страница 587 - But a mere intruder cannot enter on a person actually seized and eject him, and then question his title or set up an outstanding title in another. The maxim that the plaintiff must recover on the strength of his own title, and not on the weakness of the defendant's, is applicable to all actions for the recovery of property.

Страница 114 - If a man hath several distinct parcels of inclosed land, and he sells all but one surrounded by the others, and to which he has no way or passage except over one of the lots he has sold, it has been made a question, whether he be entitled to a right of way against his own deed, when he has been so improvident as to reserve none.

Страница 253 - We do not say that it would be deemed a bona fide transaction, so as to bind the firm, if the majority choose wantonly to act without information to or consultation with the minority (Story on Part. § 123); but when, as in the present case, the one partner has given notice, and ex'pressed his dissent in advance, there could be no reason or propriety in requiring him to be consulted by the other two. We do not consider the cases to which we have been referred, holding that one partner has the right...
Страница 253 - ... the direction and control of the business to one of the partners, that the dissent of the other would not avail, if the contract was made in good faith (Pothier Traite du Com. de Soc., No. 71, 90) ; and such also, we think, is the rule of the common law. Const, v. Harris, Turn. & Russ. 496; Story on Part.
Страница 254 - The dissent, in the present case, cannot be regarded as a dissolution; for, if effectual, it would not necessarily produce that result, although it might operate to change the mode of conducting the business. In other words, it .might be carried on without contracting debts. * Our conclusion is that the act, being concurred in by two of the partners, was, under the circumstances, the act of the firm, and that the charge, asserting the proposition that the dissent of one partner against the other...
