JUDGEMENT

- (1.)

The defendant, however, promised to pay it in a short time, but subsequently declined to make the payment. Thereupon the plaintiff was obliged to issue a notice upon him either to pay the consideration-money or to treat the transaction as cancelled, but the defendant refused to receive the notice.
(2.) The case of the other side was that the whole of the consideration-money, with the exception of a small amount, was paid to the plaintiff, and that this was a completed transaction.
(3.) The Court of First Instance, upon a consideration of the evidence in this case, held that the defendant did not pay any part of the consideration-money, and in the course of the judgment that it delivered brought to light certain facts which indicated that the parties did not consider the transaction as a completed transaction, notwithstanding the registration of the deed. The Munsif accordingly decreed the plaintiff's suit.;
