Sun Mutual Insurance Company v. Wright, 64 U.S. 23 How. 412 412 (1859)

Sun Mutual Insurance Company v. Wright

64 U.S. (23 How.) 412


The principles with respect to a policy of insurance in the preceding case of the Orient Mutual Insurance company against Wright reaffirmed in the present case.

In the correspondence which took place between the insurer and the insured, there was no waiver by the former of the right of fixing the premium, nor was it claimed or suggested in the communications between the parties at the time.

This case was entirely similar to the preceding case, except that it was contended that the insurance company had waived the right of fixing the premium by the conduct of the agent and correspondence between the parties.
