Where a composition deed is executed in favour of all creditors who shall accede within a stipulated time, creditors who neither assent nor dissent within the time are not necessarily excluded from all benefit of the deed; and, under the circumstances of the case, creditors who had delayed their accession to a composition deed for several years after the limited time. Held, entitled to participate in the benefits thereof.
