BILLS OF SALE AND CHATTEL MORTGAGES.

A bill of sale is a written instrument, transferring the ownership of personal property therein mentioned from one person to another.

The things included in the bill of sale should be delivered into the entire and continued possession of the purchaser ; else the sale will be presumed to be fraudulent as to the creditors of the vendor.

A chattel mortgage is a written instrument, transferring the ownership of personal property therein mentioned conditionally. The usual condition is, that it is to become the property of the one to whom it is mortgaged, if the mortgager fail to make payment of money in the manner specified in the mortgage.

As to the validity and registering of these mortgages, see the respective states.
