1813-02-24 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy I have now concluded my prefatory remarks, & shall proceed to give you the principles with authorities. Evidence, Volume 4 Principles with authorities
1813-02-25 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy Under this head of necessity is the case of an Escapee being a witness vs. the Sheriff when he is sued for a voluntary escape. Evidence, Volume 4 Witnesses
1813-02-26 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy On the subject of a Trustee, who has the legal title only, and in that sense always so far interested that the suit must be brought in his name, but the beneficial interest is in another. Evidence, Volume 4 Trustee
1813-02-27 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy The fourth class of persons are those wanting discretion. Under this head, all persons deranged are excluded. Evidence, Volume 4 Discretion
1813-03-01 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy I have noticed to you the ground on which the character of witnesses can be inquired into. Evidence, Volume 4 Character of witnesses
1813-03-02 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy There is an isolated subject of which I will now treat. It is with respect to the father or mother being admitted to prove the illegitimacy of the children. Evidence, Volume 4 Parents as witnesses
1813-03-03 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy Of depositions. Affadavits are a species of Deposition made by the party himself in court for some particular reason. Evidence, Volume 4 Depositions
1813-03-04 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy You will find cases in Chancery where third persons have availed themselves of the answer of a party, but this is not a departure from the rule that a judgment is conclusive only between the parties to it. Evidence, Volume 4 Third persons
1813-03-05 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy It is said that an instrument in writing cannot be delivered to one of the parties as an escrow. Evidence, Volume 4 Escrow
1813-03-06 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy Of rebutting an equity. Parol proof may be admitted to rebut an Equity. Evidence, Volume 4 Rebutting an equity
1813-03-08 Gould, James Follett, Timothy The mercantile law, or what is usually called the "law merchant," has been oftentimes denominated a "particular custom." But this is manifestly incorrect. Mercantile law, Volume 6 Lex mercatoria
1813-03-09 Gould, James Follett, Timothy I concluded my yesterday's lecture with laying down the rule that the defendant was in general not permitted to aver the want of consideration, except when the action was Mercantile law, Volume 6 Bills of exchange
1813-03-10 Gould, James Follett, Timothy No particular form or set of words is necessary in the creation of a bill of exchange, tho' there are ordinary words, which have become so established that they are usually followed. Bills of exchange & promissory notes, Volume 6 Form & requisites of a bill of exchange
1813-03-11 Gould, James Follett, Timothy For the purpose of pursuing this subject, I will again remind you of the general rule laid down, viz. that as between parties immediately concerned in the transaction, Bills of exchange & promissory notes, Volume 6 Illegality of the consideration
1813-03-13 Gould, James Follett, Timothy You will perceive from what has been said, that by absolute acceptance the drawer is bound to pay according to the tenor of the bill; and by a conditional or partial acceptance, Bills of exchange & promissory notes, Volume 6 Non-acceptance
1813-03-15 Gould, James Follett, Timothy I was in my last lecture treating of notice, necessary to be given to prior parties of non-acceptance. Bills of exchange & promissory notes, Volume 6 Mode & manner of notice
1813-03-16 Gould, James Follett, Timothy I further observe on this subject, that if the drawer refuses to accept the bill at all, any other person may accept it for the honor of the drawer or any endorser. Bills of exchange & promissory notes, Volume 6 Transfer & negotiation
1813-03-17 Gould, James Follett, Timothy In treating of the negotiability of bills yesterday, I endeavored to explain the nature of a transfer & by whom it is made. Bills of exchange & promissory notes, Volume 6 Mode of transferring bills
1813-03-18 Gould, James Follett, Timothy A transfer of a bill by endorsement is similar in legal effect to the making of a new bill; and the endorser is in almost every respect as a new drawer on the original drawee. Bills of exchange & promissory notes, Volume 6 Operation of a transfer
1813-03-19 Gould, James Follett, Timothy The time of presentment for payment where the bill is payable at a certain time after sight or at usance depends on the appointment made in this respect in the instrument. Bills of exchange & promissory notes, Volume 6 Presentment for payment
1813-03-20 Gould, James Follett, Timothy When a bill or note cannot take effect according to its form, the more proper way of declaring upon it, is to state it according to its legal operation. Bills of exchange & promissory notes, Volume 6 Action upon a bill of exchange
1813-03-20 Gould, James Follett, Timothy A promissory negotiable note is a direct engagement in writing to pay a sum of money to a person therein named or to his order or to bearer. Bills of exchange & promissory notes, Volume 6 Promissory notes
1813-03-22 Gould, James Follett, Timothy I observed that in an action to be brought by the endorser vs the drawer or acceptor, the handwriting of the first endorser must be proved, for it the payee has never endorsed, Bills of exchange & promissory notes, Volume 6 Action brought by drawer or endorser
1813-03-23 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy I shall make some introductory remarks before I enter on the general subject of insurance. Insurance, Volume 6 Insurance
1813-03-24 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy There is no question but what every person, whether a citizen or alien may be insured, except an alien enemy. Insurance, Volume 6 What persons may be insured
1813-03-25 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy Commerce of any kind with an enemy is unlawful. Insurance, Volume 6 Bottomry bonds
1813-03-26 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy Double insurance is a very different thing from reinsurance. Insurance, Volume 6 Double insurance
1813-03-27 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy In order to charge the insurer with loss, the loss must happen during the continuance of the risk. Insurance, Volume 6 Risks on goods
1813-03-29 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy It seems this is an Italian word signifying a "writing of indemnity vs. a loss." Insurance, Volume 6 Policy of insurance
1813-03-30 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy It frequently happens after you come to a certain point in a voyage, different courses may be taken to the same place. Insurance, Volume 6 Change in course of a voyage
1813-03-31 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy The next warranty that the insured makes is that the property is neutral. What is neutral property? Insurance, Volume 6 Warranty
1813-04-01 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy It seems from what I have said, that the warranty that a ship is neutral, or that the property on board is neutral & it turns out that it is not so, it is clear that the insurers are discharged. Insurance, Volume 6 Neutral ship
1813-04-02 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy There are certain things agreed on all hands, that may not be disclosed. They all proceed on the ground that the fact is as well known to the one as the other, Insurance, Volume 6 Implied warranties
1813-04-03 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy There is also an implied warranty by the insured that the ship shall not deviate, i.e., go out of her course unnecessarily. Insurance, Volume 6 Deviation of course
1813-04-05 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy There is a distinction to be observed between capture and detention. The policy is frequently provided vs detention. Insurance, Volume 6 Loss by capture
1813-04-05 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy Among other things, called general average, for which the insurers are liable, altho' the loss is on articles which would not otherwise be liable are these, when a neutral vessel Insurance, Volume 6 Right of abandonment
1813-04-07 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy If the loss is total & the policy a valued one, being bona fide, & no wager, the method of adjustment in this case has already been noticed. Insurance, Volume 6 Adjustment of losses
1813-04-08 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy It is often stipulated in the policy itself that there shall be a return of the premium on the happening of a certain event. Insurance, Volume 6 Return of the premium
1813-04-09 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy I was observing to you the necessity of stating the loss correctly that it might appear to be the loss insured. I should observe one thing to you. Insurance, Volume 6 Statement of losses
1813-04-10 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy These policies of insurance are frequently procured by agents. And the warranties are subscribed by agents, i.e., agents of the insured. Insurance, Volume 6 Agents of the insured
1813-04-10 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy An insurance against fire without interest was void at common law without the aid of statute & it has never been contradicted. Insurance, Volume 6 Insurance against fire
1813-04-10 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy An insurance on life is to insure the life of a person for a certain time, for a gross sum of money, a premium on it may be by way of annuity. Insurance, Volume 6 Insurance on lives
1813-04-13 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy There are two kinds of these charter parties. One is where a merchant agrees with the owner of a ship or the master of her to carry goods for him from one place to another. Charter parties, Volume 6 Charter parties
1813-04-14 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy I do not here enter upon the whole subject in great measure governed by the common law which is treated in another place. I merely wish to point out the Law Merchant as it differs from the common law. Joint ownership, Volume 6 Joint owners of vessels
1813-04-15 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy Factors/agency, Volume 6 Of factors
1813-04-17 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy What observations I shall make in this lecture will be merely introductory to the general subject. Public wrongs, Volume 4 No. 1 Public wrongs
1813-04-19 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy When crimes are committed certain persons are principals & it often happens that certain persons are Accessories. Public wrongs, Volume 4 No. 2 Principals & accessories
1813-04-22 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy Burglary "is the breaking & entering a man's house (domus) in the night season with interest to commit a felony." Public wrongs, Volume 4 No. 3 Burglary
1813-04-23 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy As to subornation of perjury, nothing more need to be said, but that it is "where one person induces or procures another to swear falsily." Public wrongs, Volume 4 No. 4 Subornation of perjury
1813-04-24 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy At Common Law theft cannot be committed upon choses in action, as bonds, notes &c tho' they are personal property. Public wrongs, Volume 4 No. 5 Theft
1813-04-26 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy Besides those offenses already considered, as riots, routs &c, there are those breaches of the peace which have no other name, except they are sometimes called Trespass vs. the Public. Public wrongs, Volume 4 No. 6 Breaches of the peace
1813-04-28 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy There is an offence made so by a very ancient Statute in England which Stat I believe had been copied into most of the Statutes of the United States. Forcible entry & detainer. Public wrongs, Volume 4 No. 8 Forcible entry & detainer
1813-04-29 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy I do not think it is possible to get a correct idea of homicide from any definition we have in use. Public wrongs, Volume 4 No. 9 Homicide
1813-04-30 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy I yesterday mentioned a case where one man shot his wife. There is another case. Public wrongs, Volume 4 No. 10 Homicide
1813-05-01 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy There is a process known by the name of complaint, which is made by a person in certain circumstances, to a magistrate or civic officer, the object of which is to compel another person to enter bonds that he will Keep the Peace. Public wrongs, Volume 4 No. 11 Complaint
1813-05-03 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy The general powers of a court of chancery are incapable of a definition. Chancery, Volume 4 Powers of Chancery
1813-05-04 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy I shall observe to you as I proceed all the cases where Courts of Chancery apply the principles of the Law, where Courts of Law have refused, and there are many principles to be learned which will require careful attention. Chancery, Volume 4 Principles in Chancery
1813-05-05 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy I have observed that it was a general rule that Courts of Chancery did not interfere in personal contracts when there was an adequate remedy at Law. Chancery, Volume 4 Personal contracts
1813-05-06 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy I have already abserved that Chancery will deny a specific execution of a contract where they would not rescind it. Chancery, Volume 4 Specific execution
1813-05-08 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy Chancery also exercises the power of relieving vs. penalties. Chancery, Volume 4 Relieving against penalties
1813-05-08 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy Courts of Chancery also assumed the power of relieving. Chancery, Volume 4 Power of relieving
1813-05-10 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy I was in the close of my last lecture observing to you something of the doctrine concerning a power assumed in Chancery of marshalling the assets, as the subject is important. Chancery, Volume 4 No. 7 Marshalling the assets
1813-05-11 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy There is a subject over which Chancery exercises a power which as it respects property is very important. This is allowing a Wife a separate property from the Husband. Chancery, Volume 4 Wife's separate property
1813-05-17 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy In England and in many of the States, every Bond creditor is considered as having a general lien upon the land of which the owner dies seized. Chancery, Volume 4 Bond creditors
1813-05-18 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy There are many cases where A has the legal title to property & the beneficial interest be in B. Chancery, Volume 4 Cases in Chancery
1813-05-19 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy Courts of Chancery also exercise the power of issuing injunctions. Chancery, Volume 4 Injunctions
1813-05-19 to 1813-05-25 Gould, James Follett, Timothy An estate in lands &c is the interest which the tenant has in them. Real property & mortgages, Volume 5 Estates in lands tenements & heriditaments
1813-05-19 to 1813-05-25 Gould, James Follett, Timothy These estates are either absolute or limited. An absolute estate of inheritance is an estate which one holds to himself & his heirs generally absolutely & without restriction Real property & mortgages, Volume 5 Freehhold estates of inheritance
1813-05-19 to 1813-05-25 Gould, James Follett, Timothy All freeholds not of inheritance are estates for life or lives and this is the lowest species of real property. Real property & mortgages, Volume 5 Freeholds not of inheritance
1813-05-19 to 1813-05-25 Gould, James Follett, Timothy Things, as that word is used in the law are the subjects of property; or the subjects in which an interest or estate can be enjoyed. Real property & mortgages, Volume 5 Things real definition
1813-05-26 Gould, James Follett, Timothy There are three kinds of estates: for years; at will and by sufferance. There is hardly such a thing as estates at will, but of this, hereafter. Real property & mortgages, Volume 5 Estates less than freehold
1813-05-26 Gould, James Follett, Timothy The second species of life estates created by operation of law is tenancy in dower. Real property & mortgages, Volume 5 Tenancy in dower
1813-05-27 Gould, James Follett, Timothy I observe that the tenant has, if not restricted by agreement, the same estovers as a tenant for life. Real property & mortgages, Volume 5 Incidents of an estate for years.
1813-05-28 Gould, James Follett, Timothy I would premise that there has always prevailed among students an idea that this title is of extreme intricacy, but I think it is unfounded. Real property & mortgages, Volume 5 Estates in possession remainder & reversion
1813-07-15 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy This subject depends upon the adjudication of courts on the construction of wills. Devises, Volume 5 Devises definition
1813-07-16 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy If a will is made inconsistent with a former one, the former is revoked, but a codicil is not a revocation. It may be added to it, or explanatory of it. Devises, Volume 5 Inconsistent wills
1813-07-17 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy As to the number of witnesses, three or more are required by the statute. This has been subject of contention. Devises, Volume 5 Number of witnesses
1813-07-20 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy There is a question on which I am unable to find any decision, but only the propositions of elementary writers. It is this: that a will may be good as to personal & not as to real property. Devises, Volume 5 Revocation of wills
1813-07-21 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy Another species of implied revocation arises from an intention to revoke, e.g., if the instrument to revoke is deficient in requisites so that it cannot operate as a will Devises, Volume 5 Implied revocation
1813-07-22 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy This clause of the statute has made no material difference in the law, for it would be so at common law, because the tearing &c would manifest an intention to destroy it. Devises, Volume 5 Tearing cancelling blotting obliterating
1813-07-23 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy So when the testator gave to "A B" & there were two persons of that same, parol was admitted to show which of them he meant. Devises, Volume 5 Two persons of the same name
1813-07-24 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy Parol testimony is such as is constantly introduced to rebut an equity. A great deal of the business of Chancery is to enforce contracts or duties implicit in equity. Devises, Volume 5 Parol testimony
1813-07-27 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy There are a number of the States which have adopted the English statute of uses. Others have not. Those who have adopted it, have adopted also the English construction. Devises, Volume 5 English statute of uses
1813-07-28 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy There has been a question, much contested, whether a married woman can devise. The English statute 34 Henry 8 declares she shall not devise real property. Devises, Volume 5 Can a married woman devise
1813-07-29 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy Almost any person may be a devisee. There may be statutory disqualifications: these you will find in the statutes of your several states. Want of discretion is never an objection. Devises, Volume 5 Who may be devisees
1813-07-30 Reeve, Tapping Follett, Timothy An estate in remainder is subject to technical rules & the intention of the grantor must yield to the superior forces of these. Devises, Volume 5 Remainders
[1812-01-01 to 1812-12-31] Gould, James Follett, Timothy As a plea in abatement does not regularly go to the merits of the cause, a judgment upon it does not regularly go in bar of a subsequent action for the same cause. Pleas & pleadings, Volume 3 Judgment on a plea in abatement
