Recital of bond.

Assignment of a Bond and Judgment by a Husband and a Wife as a Security for a Debt.

Obs. Bonds being legal chases in action, a husband has not the power of assigning them; he has only the power of reducing them into possession during his life. If he assign them, the assignee standing in his place may, during his life, Eue in the name of the husband; but if he die before the assignee has reduced them into possession, the right of action will survive to the wife, 1 Rep. Hits. and VV. 225; and equity will not support the husband's assignment of a wife's bond, although made for a valuable consideration, Burnet v. Kiyiaston, 2 Frcem. 239; S. C. 2 Vera. 401; Prec.in Cba. 121. Parker (in Prec. Cha. iVl, Packer) v. Wfnilhum, Gilb. Rep. Eq. 98.
