of Drawee Bank to Refuse to Pay.

Question 132.— Has a bank any legal right to refuse payment of a cheque—or is there any custom to warrant their doing so, there being funds for the same—on which is interlined "Payment in full of account," or any similar wording?

Answer.—We do not think a bank has any right to refuse a cheque merely because it contains a statement of the purpose for which it is given. So long as it is an unconditional order on the bank to pay the money, they are bound by their customer's instructions.
