false demonstration


false demonstration
The doctrine that where the description of a person or a thing in a will is made up of more than one part, and one part is true while the other is inexact or false, then, if the part which is true describes the subject or object of the gift with sufficient certainty, the untrue part may be rejected and the gift sustained. 57 Am J1st Wills § 1199.
