Question 169.— A man assigns and within a week dies. A cheque dated after his death which is made payable to him personally is presented for payment. Should the assignee of the estate or his executor or administrator endorse the cheque ?
Answer.—If the cheque was given for a debt due at the time the assignment was made, we think the money might be safely paid to the assignee. On general principles the executor or administrator should endorse.
