This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1916 edition. Excerpt: ...notice of such equities. See H endrix v. Bauhard, 138 Ga. 473 (2), 481 (75 S. E. 588, 43 L. R. A. (N. S.) 1028, 29 Ann. Cas. (1913D) 688).

See also Bank of Commerce v. Bar1-ett, 38 Ga. 126 (95 Am. D. 384); Park v. Zellars, 139 Ga. 585 (4), 586 (77 S. E. 922); Bank of Lavonia, v. Bush, 140 Ga. 594 ('79 S. E. 459). In the light of what has been said, there was no error in striking paragraph 5 of the plea. ' 2.
