A writ not to distrain. Non dubitatur, etsi specialiter venditor evictionem non promiserit, re evic- ta, ex empto competere actionem.

Non efiicit affectus nisi scquatur cf- fectus. The intention amounts to nothing unless the effect follow. 1 Kolle, 220. Non erit alia lex Romse, alia Athacnis; alia nunc, alia postbac; sed ct omnes gentes, et omni tempore, una lex, et sempiterna, et iminortalis contincbit. There will not be one law at Rome, another at Athens; one law now, another hereafter; but one eternal and immortal law shall bind together all nations throughout all time. Cic. Frag, de Itepub. lib. 3; 3 Kent, Comm. 1. Non est arctius vinculum inter homines quam jusjurandum. There is no closer [or firmer] bond between men than an oath. Jenk. Cent. p. 120, ease 54.
