Townsend v. Todd

91 U.S. 452


This Court is bound to follow the courts of the State of Connecticut in their uniform decisions in construing the recording acts of that state that a mortgage must truly describe the debt intended to be secured and that it is not sufficient that the debt be of such a character that it might have been secured by the mortgage had it been truly described.
