Falsa demonstratione legatum non perimi


Falsa demonstratione legatum non perimi
An erroneous description will not nullify a legacy. It was a rule of the civil law, that a legacy should not perish by reason of a false description, but the statute of wills modifies the maxim to some extent. Roman Catholic Orphan Asylum v Emmons (NY) 3 Bradf 144, 149.
