The plaintiffs declared upon the "second" of the set of exchange, which "second of the set" was protested for nonacceptance, and the same, with the protest thereto attached, was read in evidence to the jury. Whereupon a question arose whether the plaintiffs could recover upon the said second of exchange without producing the first of the same set or accounting for its nonproduction, upon which the judges were opposed in opinion.
