transfer by indorsement


transfer by indorsement
The endorsement and delivery of a negotiable instrument to the indorsee. Such delivery may be actual, as where it is manually handed by one to the other, or it may be constructive, as where the indorser puts the instrument in the power or under the control of the indorsee. Clark v Sigourney, 17 Conn 510, 524.
