Now up to the time of the vessel being lost, he (his Honor) could not see that any contract had been made. The insurance company might have refused to have given up the policy until the premium had been paid; and as there was not any contract made up to the time of the vessel being lost, there could not be after: therefore he considered the party not entitled to the document. His Honor Mr. Justice Montagu said, that at the time the trial came before him he plainly told the jury there was no evi dence to justify the beli...
