(a) There is no provision in this draft as to the payment of rates and taxes, probably on the supposition that moveable machines are not liable to any rates or taxes. But as they might become so by subsequent enactments, perhaps the usual covenant for the payment of rates and taxes should be inserted.

(b) The provision's with respect to the loss or destruction of the machines are not very satisfactory; it would, perhaps, be better that the lessee should covenant to keep them in repair, and that, without the exception of the loss by fire or any other exception, for he has the control of them; and whatever risk or wear and tear they are exposed to, must be through his acts or default. If the machines are to be kept together, as in a manufactory, provision should be made for insuring them against fire; but, of course, that object cannot be conveniently accomplished, if they are to be dispersed separately in the houses of the workmen.
