Gallardo y Seary v. Noble
Argued January 20, 1915
Decided February 1, 1915
236 U.S. 135
A statement of the condition of the record title made by an owner of property in Porto Rico does not necessarily enlarge the scope of an incumbrance mentioned in the statement from what it actually is
or estop the person making the statement; e.g., a reference to a mortgage on crops as being one on the land.
A mortgage on property in Porto Rico held in this case to be one on the crops alone, and not on the land.
The facts, which involve the construction of a mortgage affecting property in Porto Rico and the determination of the question of whether it embraced the land or only the crops, are stated in the opinion.
