Question 401.— A small sum has been found on the floor of the bank outside the counter. The party finding it has handed it to the manager, stating that he will consider himself entitled to the money in the event of its being unclaimed. Has he a legal right to it or should the money be retained by the bank ?
Answer.—The money should be returned to the finder unless the true owner turns up.
