Again, although at first sight it might band to transfer, the wife consenting, the transfer would appear, as it seems to have been argued in Re Pender, be ordered. His Honor thought that this was not a that, when the act speaks of the party chargeable by | case to which the doctine of merger applied; and put such bill, it must be speaking of a bill signed, because, his decision on the ground, that the married woman, if the bill is not signed, the attorney cannot recover being entitled to the life interest and reversion, had such upon it, and therefore, in a sense, the client is not an interest as could be dealt with in equity as if she had chargeable; yet a little consideration shews that this the whole interest. cannot be the meaning of the word “chargeable;" for This case is peculiarly important, because, although the client is as chargeable on the bill before as after the same judge has already decided two others of a signature; the chargeability being, not the immediate similar nature in the same way, (Wilson v.
