INDEX. 607
VENDOR'S LIEN.— Continued.
session the single bill referred to, this receipt cannot have the effect
to defeat the claim of B. S. for this debt, and he is, to the extent of
his share of the realty, an unpaid vendor thereof, and has a right in
equity to pursue the estate or its proceeds, as against the vendee or
volunteers claiming under him or his judgment and general creditors.
Spalding vs. Brent et al., 411.
2. The purchase-money attaches to the land in the hands of the vendee as a
trust; and the heirs of the vendee, and all other parties claiming under
him or them, with notice, are treated as in the same predicament. Ring-
gold vs. Bryan, 488.
3. Where the vendee has sold the land to a bona fide purchaser without
notice, if the latter has not paid the purchase-money, the original vendor
may proceed against the estate, or the purchase-money in his hands; for
in such a case, not having paid the purchase-money, he takes the land

2. A testator bequeathed to his daughter the sum of two hundred and fifty
dollars and two negro slaves, " and in case of her death, without issue,
the property to go to her sisters." HELD—
That the limitation over is void as to the two hundred and fifty dol-
lars, being after an indefinite failure of issue. Ib.
3. The mere circumstance that the limitation over is to a person in esse will
not of itself be sufficient, even as regards bequests of personalty, to re-
strict the words, " dying without issue," to mean a dying without issue
at the death of the first legatee. Ib.
4. Where (he limitation over after a bequest of personalty is, if the first le-
gatee dies without "leaving" issue, the word " leaving " restricts the
limitation over to a definite failure of issue. Ib.
5. A testator bequeathed his whole estate, with some small exceptions, to
