Question 64.— What do you think is the correct due date of a bill dated 24th August, 1899, and payable two and a-half months after date?

Answer.—Two months from August 24th would be 24th October, and apparently the question to be determined is when a half month from the latter date would end. In our opinion this is not determinable, and the bill in consequence is not a bill of exchange within the meaning of the Act, as it is not payable at a fixed future time.
