Effect of Failure to Satisfy the


EFFECT OF FAILURE TO SATISFY THE 17TH SECTION'. The utlitcction of the Stat ute of Frauds, unlike the 4th section, is said to go to the existence of the contract, and invalidate a contract within the section which is not made as it prescribes. (Leroux v. Brown, 12 C. B. 8o9; Houtaling v. Ball, 20 Mo. 563.) Anson questions the substantiality of this rule, and asserts that the words of the 17th section, which declare that the contract shall not "be allowed to be good," do not any more than the words of the 4th section relate to the existence of the contract. (An= sonon Contract, pp. 67-8.)
