Action of Account where the defen-
dant had accounted before Auditors

self had the tallies and rolls, 38.

Defendant admitted receipt of part,
and was ready to account in respect
thereof, but in respect of the resi-
due produced an obligation con-
ditioned to be void if the plaintiff
should not be distrained, for services
in arrear, &c, in certain tenements
which he had of the defendant's
feoffment, and alleged that he had
not been distrained. The plaintiff
said that he had been distrained for


services in arrear. According to
the reports the issue could not be
taken as to the fact of the distress,
but only as to whether any thing
was in arrear at the time of the
feoffment. But according to the
record, in the same or a similar case,
the issue joined was as to whether
any distress had been taken, after
the feoffment, for arrears owing
before the feoffment, 64-66.

Account may not be by parcels, but,
where receipt of parcel is ad-
mitted and reccipt of the residue
denied, the defendant shall not
account for the one part until the
issue has been tried as to the
residue, 66.

Defendant may wage his law as to
receipt of one parcel, and join issue
to the country as to the receipt of
another, 172.
