Seite 6 - ... no Act or other matter shall be deemed to be an interruption, within the meaning of this statute, unless the same shall have been or shall be submitted to, or acquiesced in for one year after the party interrupted shall have had or shall have notice thereof, and of the person making or authorizing the same to be made.

Seite 58 - ... rights, on his own land, without at the same time obstructing the former right of the plaintiff, he had only himself to blame for the existence of such a state of things, and must be considered to lose the former right which he had, at all events until he should, by himself doing away with the access and restoring his windows to their former state, throw upon the defendant the necessity for so arranging his buildings as not to interfere with the admitted right.
