Not infrequently reference is made to the "practical location," by the parties to a conveyance, of the boundary or boundaries referred to therein.75 This expression refers to a designation of the line by agreement between the grantee and the grantor, the latter retaining the adjoining land, followed by possession in accordance therewith, or to possession up to a certain line by each of the parties, without any specific agreement. In other words, the expression referred to appears to include both an agreement as to the boundary line and acquiescence in such a line, regarded as an application or interpretation by the parties in interest of the language of the conveyance.
