Cases cited for the defendants: Holm v. Green (1 Stark. R. 488) ; Green T. Danes (4 B. & C. 235); Tullockv. Ounn (Ry. & Mo. 416) ; Eastwood v. Saville (9 M. & W. 615) j Willii v. Newnham (2 Y. & J. 518) j Maghee v. O'Neill; Atkins v. T,-edgold (2 B. & C. 23).
Hoggins, for the plaintiff.
The COURT were of opinion that it did not sufficiently appear that the allowance made by the deceased executor was made by him in his character of executor, but that the evidence rather shewed he had taken the debt upon himself, and consequently the allowance could not bind the executors.
