This was contrary to law, and a fuit was commenced, in which Margery's father got the better. 'The fame offence was committed three 4iifferent times, and as many a&'ions brought, in all of which the F ar mer had a veydi& and coils paid him; -but notwithstanding Ehefe advantages, the Law was fo exrpen five, that he was ruined in the contell, and obliged. to t ive up all hle had to his Crtdixors which effeaually anfwered the purpofe of Sir imothy, who ere&ed thofe v -inifances in the Faurmer's orchard with that 'intention only.
