Not illustrated. 1922 edition. Excerpt: ...was thereafter adopted under which a trustee could be appointed to convey the property in lieu of the non-resident defendant. In Felch v. Hooper, 11L9 Mass.-5:2, subsequent to this legislation, jurisdiction was sustained of a bill by a purchaser of lands, who had paid or tendered the purchase price and been given possession of the lands and p1'ayed for legal title. The court expressly says that a bill for specific performance could not be sustained, but that the suit in question was a suit to enforce an implied trust. I confess it is difiicult for me to see the distinction, for the equitable doctrine is, and has always been, that a vendor is a trustee of the lands for the vendee from the time of the making of the contract (Of.
