Lat. More; more fully; more In number; rather. Majlis de bono quam de malo lex intendit. Co. Litt. 7Sb. The law favors a good rather than a bad construction. Where the words used in an agreement are susceptible of two meanings, the one agreeable to, the other against, the law, the former is adopted. Thus, a bond conditioned “to assign all offices” will be construed to apply to such offices only as are assignable. Chit Cont. 78. Magis dignnm trahit ad se minus dig- num. Tlie more worthy draws to itself the less worthy. Yearb. 20 Hen. VI. 2, arg.
