A similar habendum for the other term. A common declaration of trust is afterwards inserted, introduced in the manner mentioned in the preceding note. Of course, if the terms are for different numbers of years, there is no occasion to distinguish them by reference to the deeds

y which they were created. (See, further, on assignments of terms, the notes to Precedent LI., supra).

mortgages. no habendum, and to each habendum is subjoined a reference to the subsequent proviso for redemption. Hence, many of the preceding observations on purchase-deeds, particularly of those contained in the notes to Precedents XVI. and XVII., will be equally applicable to mortgages ; and the following notes will be chiefly directed to those things which are peculiar to mortgages.

Recital of the (c) The recital of the contract for the loan is somewhat shorter than contract for the the usual form, which runs as follows:

“ And whereas the said A. B., having occasion for the sum of £1,000, hath applied to and requested the said C. D. to advance and lend him the same, which he the said C. D. hath agreed to do upon having the repayment of the said sum of £1,000, with interest for the same in the meantime, after the rate hereinafter mentioned, secured to him, the said C. D., his executors, administrators, and assigns, in manner hereinafter mentioned:"|

There are other forms longer than this, and consisting of two distinct recitals, one mentioning the request and the other the willingness to comply with it; but, as the contract in the text states all that is essential, that, or a nearly similar form, is generally used in this collection. It is not very easy to see why it should be stated, that the mortgagor has occasion for the money, for if he chooses to borrow it without having occasion for it, it is quite the same to the mortgagee; and it appears superfluous to state to whom the repayment is to be secured, for repayment necessarily implies payment to the lender or his representatives. The common expression, that the loan is made at the request of the mortgagor, may well be spared, for his wish for the loan must
