Protection of another against an attack upon his person. a good cause of exemption We come now to consider the reasons why Protection

than the mischief of attack.

so against an attack upon his property. The same thing may be observed with respect
to the Protection of another against an attack
upon his property. These are the same reasons
why this case should operate as an exemption.

But not against an attack upon his reputation. For From the same reasons also as were given with

is afforded the Law as it stands with us makes several distinctions

which ought as it should seem to operate a total
exemption in favour of an act of temporary disablement.
