His "argument" and he sanctioned the raising of the fresh advance in the way in support of his first proposition was limited to a state proposed. mont of the great Lord HARDWICKE's refusal of office and to a general reference to "the records of British history."

Where no proud; but do two or three swallows make a summer? We express arrangement is made for passing on the liability, the do not think that lawyers, as a body, can claim the credit for law imposes upon each successive assignee the duty of indisinterestedness which the Lord Chancellor ascribes to them, demnifying the original lessee during the period of his ownerthough they are probably neither better nor worse in this respect ship. But the more usual course is to make the first assignee than other people of similar station in society. Upon the give the lessee an express covenant of indemnity, and then in second proposition the Lord Chancellor dwelt at some length; turn to take a corresponding covenant from the next assignee, but even as to this, he could apparently say no more than that and so on through the whole chain of assignments. By this lawyers are taught to recognize the fact of there being two means the lessee is not left to his remedy against the holder of sides to a questior, and that while most people thought they the term for the time being, who may be unable to pay, but can were certainly in the right, lawyers were apt to remember that look at all times to his own immediate assignee, as to whose they might possibly be in the wrong.

Certainly his influence upon judges PERKINS died and Plaistow became bankrupt. Subsequently and juries depends largely on this. We imagine the truth is Perkins' executors assigned, as they were entitled to do, to a that the constant endeavour of the lawyer to do the best he can man of straw, and so put an end to their personal liability: for his client is not very conducive to the habit of appreciating POYsER, the original lessee, was called upon to pay the rent, and both sides of a question, and that it needs rather a rare had there been no express covenants for indemnity, he would combination of qualities for him, while energetically enforcing have been abandoned to the worthless implied liability of the his client's view, to give full weight to what may be urged last assignee.

On the whole, we are afraid we must not lay covenant had become doubtful owing to Plaistow's bankruptcy. the Lord Chancellor's "flattering unction” to our souls. However, he carried in a claim in the bankruptcy, and this was

compromised by his accepting a nominal payment and an

assignment of the benefit of the covenant of indemnity by PERKINS. IN THE CASE of Re Lord Monson's Settled Estates (reported The question thereupon arose what the value of this covenant elsewhere) ROMER, J., has given a useful construction to the in the hands of the lessee, might be. On behalf of Perkins' powers of a tenant for life to treat as a single settled estate, it was contended that since his contract was only one estate properties which have been brought into the settle- of indemnity, it was limited to the loss actually sustained by mont by different instruments. It has been established that, PLAIsTow's estate, which, under the circumstances, was nothing, under the definition of "settlement” contained in section NORTH, J., however, declined to take this view, and held that 2 (1) of the Settled Land Act, 1882, two or more instru- the lessee was entitled to be paid out of Perkins' estate the ments are admissible as forming the settlement (see Re Byng'& rent which he had already paid, and also to a declaration of Settled Estates, 1892, 2 Ch. 219); and, in general, the indemnity against future payments of rent and breaches of different properties are treated, for the purposes of the " com- covenant.
