(J) To introduce recitals after one of the operative parts of a deed is contrary to the general principles and practice of conveyancing. But it is allowed in some instances like that in the text, where the subject-matter of the recital, and its subsequent operative part, are wholly distinct from the preceding matters, and especially where the principal matter of the deed requires no recital. It may, however, be doubted, whether any such advantage is gained by the practice as to counterbalance the evil of departing from the general rule.

(£) If a condition of re-entry be reserved for non-payment of rent generally, or on "the same being lawfully demanded," the lessor must observe a number of minute and tedious forms with the utmost exactness before he can re-enter; (1 Wins. Saund. 287, n. (16)); and though the qualification in the text somewhat facilitates the proceeding, it is much better to give the power of re-entry on non-payment of the rent, " whether the same shall have been lawfully demanded or not." No injury is done to the lessee, as equity always relieves against a re-entry for non-payment of rent, on payment of arrears with interest. ( Wadman v. Calcraft, 10 Ves. 67).
