D represented him-self as a partner in X and Co.

The partnership is bound to make good the loss: 1. He is liable to E as though he is an actual member of x and Co. in the second example. B’s knowledge also operates as knowledge of the partnership. or knowledge of a partner of matter affecting partnership affairs. This is a case of partnership liability results. This proviso involves a question of fact and it may be difficult to prove that such knowledge was then present in A’s mind. if B acquired knowledge or notice before he became a partner. ART. 3. the partnership is liable therefore to the same extent as the partner so acting or omitting to act.1823. However. 1825.” 4. B. ART. b. Where one partner acting within the scope of his apparent authority receives money or property of a third person and misapplies it. Effect of notice to. not being a partner in the partnership.
