Not illustrated. 1839 edition. Excerpt: ...borrow, owe, or take up any sum of money on their bills or notes payable at demand, or at any less time than six months from the borrowing thereof;' and that clause has been incorporated into all the subsequent acts relating to the Bank of England."--Now this clause was not introduced into the act by which the Bank was established, nor into the subsequent acts by which its capital is enlarged, nor until the act 6 Ann., and then to obviate a particular mischief. This mistake is material, because it shews that Lord Tenterden was under the impression that the Bank was originally protected and fenced round by a privilege which was not conferred upon it nntil many years after its establishment. Lord Tenterden proceeds: "It seems to me that, by the fair interpretation of that statute, the words 'owe on a bill of exchange' are applicable to those who are liable as acceptors, for such persons are debtors on the bill."--It is manifest that the words "owe on a bill of exchange," which Lord Tenterden supposed to be in the act, are not to be found there; the very question which has been so much discussed in the present case being one which, if the words had been what Lord Tenterden erroneously supposed them to be, could not by possibility have been raised. For the purposes of the present argument, therefore, Broughton v. The Manchester 1837. 1837. The Bank of England v. Anderson. The Bank of England v. Anderson. tcr Water Works Company, even if it had been recognized as good law by subsequent cases, could not be fairly used. The question to be proved here having, in that case, been taken for granted upon an erroneous assumption, any inference founded upon that erroneous assumption must fail; for it will scarcely be contended at more
