When the quantity of land to be conveyed is given in the deed, it will not control either monuments or courses or distances,167 though it may aid a description otherwise defective, and quantity may be made to control by express words.168 In the absence of such words, the quantity given in a deed will have no effect unless there is a covenant as to the amount. When the quantity is given, and the words "more or less" are added, no more, is meant than what the law would imply, namely, that the grantee takes the risk as to the amount.169 The addition of the words "more or less" will not prevent an action for fraud when there has been a misrepresentation as to the amount170
