Report No. 185
This section refers to 'evidence as to the meaning of illegible characters, etc'. It reads as follows:
"98. Evidence may be given to show the meaning of illegible or not commonly intelligible characters, of foreign, obsolete, technical, local and provincial expressions, of abbreviations, and of words used in peculiar sense".
Illustration below Section 98 reads thus:
"A, sculptor, agrees to sell to B, "all my mods". A has both models and modeling tools. Evidence may be given to show which he meant to sell'.
We agree with para 44.14 of the 69th Report that Section 98 does not require any change.
