on the rate
of interest on Mortgage

22 17. 19 Of Concerning the influence of the measure on the rate of
interest paid on given for money secured by mortgage,
it seems scarce worth while a for the present purpose
to institute a separate enquiry. The rate
of interest in this superior security will be exposed
to the action of the same pair of conflicting causes
as in the case of personal security, as just
mentioned. The same mass of money it may be observed
