Second National Bank of Cincinnati v. Hemingray et al.
THE SECOND NATIONAL BANK OF CINCINNATI v. R. HEMINGRAY ET AL.
Homans & Co., bankers, of Cincinnati, held several notes of R. Hemingray made in Kentucky, and R. Hemingray & Co., of which R. Hemingray was the principal partner, kept their bank account with Homans & Co. By mutual arrangement of the members of the firm, R. Hemingray did his individual banking business in the name of R. Hemingray & Co., and kept no bank account in his individual name. Homans & Co., while in good credit, without the knowledge of Hemingray, or Hemingray & Co., transferred, by indorsement, his notes to the plaintiff as collateral security for a loan of money, and afterward became insolvent before Hemingray was notified of the transfer. Hemingray & Co. had on deposit with Homans & Co. $10,000,
