It is customary for a negotiable instrument containing a recital of a consideration, as by the use of the words, "for value received." This, however, is not essential.1 Thus a check is negotiable without the words, "value received," though by statute such words are necessary in a note.2 So a recital of any valuable consideration is sufficient.3 If a check is given for a debt which is barred by the Statute of Limitations, it heed not recite the consideration.4
