not, previously to the said
committed

any act or acts of bankruptcy whatso-
ever. [Or if the (insolvent) cannot swear to this
affidavit, let him swear] “ That ALL persons
“ who were creditors of this deponent on the
day of

in the year of our Lord (being the day, &c.) or at any time since, have duly executed, &c. except certain persons “ who are not creditors in the whole for £200, “ and no two of whom, or more than two dealing in two copartnerships, are creditors for £150,

nor one of them, or more than one dealing in

one copartnership, is or are creditor or creditors “ for £100; and that to the best of this deponent's * knowledge, &c. he had not previously, &c. “committed any act of bankruptcy (1).”

(1) In all cases of purchase from insolvents there is some degree of risque, as the purchase is liable to be defeated by a subsequent commission. The creditors who have signed the deed are, however, estopped from petitioning for a commission. (See Tappenden v. Burgess, 4 East. 236.) and if the remaining creditors are not sufficient in number and value for the purpose, no cominission can be taken out. The affidavit may be sworn before any magistrate or officer who will administer an oath ; but as it is not in the course of a legal proceeding, perjury could not be assigned thereon.

Equity ; for a reversionary interest may be sold as legally as an estate in possession. Whether a court of Equity would interfere to relieve against post obit bonds upon payment of the sum really advanced, with legal interest, and an allowance for insuring the risque, is a question that has frequently been agitated, and in the variety of cases that have occurred, the court has, according to the particular circumstances, granted or denied relief. If there is any circumstance of fraud or circumvention, if an undue advantage has been taken of the necessities of the vendor, or if the terms of the agreement are grossly unequal, the court will so far interfere, as to consider it only a security for money lent.
