When the wine is sold for ready
money the presumption is that both
were delivered at the same time.

ought to be expressed. For if either
of the article remains undelivered, things
the corresponding one was delivered
so long as this is the case, the non-
delivering party is really a Debtor
to the others. Hence the the statement
remains ambiguous. This ambiguity
is cleared away by the expression
The six following "examples" as
they are called can not but be intended
as example of that same
for of the 4th Rule no mention is made
