We venture to somewhat to blame, and have been in some respects unreasonable think that it is matter for great regret that this should only be a and litigious, but very often the blame is altogether, or chiefly, on presumption, for there can be little doubt that it expresses the one side. In such cases it is very hard for the reasonable and true state of the case in almost every instance. The lengths to blameless litigant to be left without remedy because it is a “mere which the doctrine of collateral agreements might be pushed are question of costs,” and to have to pay his own costs of proceedings illustrated in the recent case, where one of the verbal representain which his opponent has conducted himself in an unreasonable, ions alleged by the plaintiff to constitute an agreement collateral litigious, or vexatious manner.

So long as the “small fee” was an exceptional thing, leases. In the case which set the doctrine afoot (Morgan v. it might secure personal attention," but when it is the common Griffith, L.

But in Erskine v. Adeane efficacious in securing attention, and the decision in the case shows (21 W. R. 802, L.

He said that, “ While there was citor to a clerk of the sherif's officer, the creditor cannot (in an agreement going on for a lease which was to contain certain the absence of proof of direct authority from the officer to his stipulations only, a promise was made, or a representation which clerk to receive such writs) sue the sheriff's officer for negliamounted to a promise, by (the landlord] that the game of which gence in not procuring the warrant in time. the tenant was then complaining should be so dealt with as not to amount to a serious nuisance to the tenant" -and this promise the court held to be valid.
