[33] “If anyone had driven me from my house by armed violence, I should have ground for action against him. Have I then no ground, if he has prevented me from entering my house?” Dissimilar points may be illustrated by the following example1: “Because a man has bequeathed all his silver to a given person and this bequest is regarded as including silver coin as well as plate, it does not follow that he intended all outstanding debts to be paid to the legatee.”

1 cp. Cic. Top. iii. 13 and 16.
