PREFACE TO VOLUMES LXXVIII.

AND LXXIX.

The advertisement prefixed to Vol. 78 has explained why two volumes have now to be dealt with. In Vol. 78 the most difficult case-one of the most difficult in the whole range of the reports—is Doe d. Carter v. Barnard, p. 564. The decision is hard to reconcile with the settled rule, applicable to property of every kind, that a mere wrongdoer shall not set up an outstanding title in a stranger against a prior possessor: Davison v. Gent (1857) 1 H. & N. 744, 26 L. J. Ex. 122; Asher v. Whitlock (1865) L. R. 1 Q. B. 1, 35 L. J. Q. B. 17; Dalton v. Fitzgerald (1897] 2 Ch. 86, 66 L. J. Ch. 604. If Doe v. Barnard can be reconciled with these and other accepted authorities, it must be on the ground that, although the defendant may not prove the weakness of the plaintiff's title, he may rely on it if it is disclosed by the plaintiff's own case. Such a distinction was very briefly suggested by Mellor, J. in Asher v. Whitlock; and see a learned note in Radcliffe and Miles, Cases on the Law of Torts, p. 289. The present writer formerly acquiesced in this explanation : Pollock and Wright on Possession, p. 97 Shortly afterwards it was rejected by Prof. J. B. Ames of Harvard in a note to a very learned article on the Disseisin of Chattels : Harv. Law Rev. iii. 324, n. 2. As the Harvard Law Review is not to be found in all English law libraries, we think it useful to reprint his observations.

“In that case (Doe v. Barnard] B. occupied without right for eighteen years, and died leaving a son; C. excluded the son and occupied for thirteen years, when he was ousted by A., the original owner. C. brought ejectment against A., but failed; not, however,
