Overview

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1902 Excerpt: ...in general, can only be (Lloyd's ed.) 137; 3 Chitty Com. 202 Sumner v. Hamlet, 12 Pick. Law 547; Story Ag., § 361. (Mass.) 76.

Innkeeper's lien.--An innkeeper has a right to a lien upon all the property of his guest placed under the protection of the inn for the full amount of his bill.267 But the lien does not extend to the person of the guest, thoug...
