No. 1. ALTERATION OF NEGOTIABLE INSTRU- MENTS. [T he following examination of this subject is part of a chapter of a work on Bills and Notes, for theS tudents Series, by Melville M. Bigblow, Esq. Only the more important of the cases are cited.] ANOTHER case of want of contract arises where there has been a material unauthorized alteration of the instrument to which the defendant gave his signature. The authorities in general declare that to alter the terms, written or printed, of a negotiable note, bill, or check, after the defendants signature was written to it, is to destroy its validity against him, even in the hands of a bona fide holder for value. The reason is plain. The altered instrument is not the one he signed; and the identity of the one signed has been destroyed A material alteration within the meaning of the rule stated may be defined thus: A ny alteration (i) changing the legal effect of the instnmient; (2) made with such intent, or being a final act; (3) without consent; (4) by a party to it, or by one in lawful possession of it, is a material alteration. The divisions of the definition, as here given, will serve as basis of an analysis of the subject Wade V, Witfiington, i AU en, 561; Draper v, Waid, i Bfass. 315 ;A ldikh v.
