CHAPTER XVI.

BILL OF SALE.

Bill of Sale of Goods. This indenture, made, &c. [Recite the contract for sale or mortgage, as the case may be.] Now, this indenture witnesseth, that, in consideration of, &c., he, the said A. B., hath bargained, sold, and assigned, and, &c., unto the said C. D., his executors, administrators, and assigns, all the household furniture, goods, things, utensils, and other chattels mentioned and described in the schedule hereunto annexed,

s If by way of security, recite the money due, and in consideration of the same assign the goods; and after the habendum add a proviso for making void the deed on payment of the money due ; then add the warranty, and covenant for payment of the amount due, and for quiet enjoyment until default. Or the same may be assigned in trust to sell, and after retaining the money due to the creditor, (the bargainee,) then in trust to pay the residue to the bargainor, his executors and administrators, with power to enter on the premises for effecting the sale; and add the usual warranty, which is much shorter, and equally as effectual as covenants, in regard to the right of possession and further assurance of the property. In fact, a warranty as to personal property (such as goods and chattels) is created by implication, for the purchaser of goods may have a satisfaction from the seller if the title prove deficient, although there be no express warranty. (See “ Assignments,” in trust to secure money; see also “Mortgages.")

And the said Warranty.

(or which are now in, about, or belonging to the
dwelling-house and premises of the said A. B., situate
at ) and all the right, title, interest, and pro-
perty of the said A. B. of, in, and to the said house-
hold furniture, and other chattels, hereby assign-
ed, or intended so to be, unto the said Č. D., his
executors, administrators, and assigns, as his and
their own proper goods and chattels.
A. B., for himself and his executors and administra-
tors, all and singular the said goods and household
stuff unto the said C. D., his executors, administra-
tors, and assigns, against him, the said A. B., his
executors, administrators, and assigns, and against
all and every other person or persons whatsoever,
shall and will warrant and for ever defend, by these
presents; of which goods, &c., the said A. B. hath
put the said C. D. in full possession, by delivering
him one chair, in the name of all the said goods and
chattels, at the sealing and delivery hereof.,

In witness, &c.t

The attestation may be as follows: " Signed, sealed, and delivered by the within-named (or above-named, as the case may be) A. B., (being first duly stamped,) and, at the same time, full possession of all and singular the goods, chattels

, and effects, within-mentioned, (or above-mentioned,) to be bargained and sold, were given by the said A. B. to the said C. D., by the said A. B.'s delivering to the said C. D. one chair, in the name of the whole of the same goods and premises, in the presence of,” &c.

N. B.-The possession of the goods and chattels must actually accompany and follow the deed, to make it available against creditors, except in cases where the deed being conditional or by way of mortgage, the retainer of possession by the assignor would be consistent with the terms of the assignment, but it would be valid as between the parties. (Edwards v. Harbon, 2 T. R. 587; Dutton v. Morrison, 17 Ves. 193; Steel v. Brown, 1 Taunt. 381.)
