Nov. 2. PLUNKETT V. CAVENDISH.
A reversioner files a bill against a defendant, who claims under a recovery suffered by a prior tenant in tail, and charges, that, if any recovery was suffered, the uses of it were so declared, that under them the plaintiff had title, and that so it would appear, if the defendant would produce the
