Page 153 - Compute the interest to the time of the first payment ; if that be one year or more from the time the interest commenced, add it to the principal, and deduct the payment from the sum total. If there be after payments made, compute the interest on the balance due to the next payment, and then deduct the payment as above; and, in like manner, from one payment to another, till all the payments are absorbed ; provided the time between one payment and another be one year or more.

Page 155 - In casting interest upon bonds, notes, &.c., upon which partial payments have been made, every payment is to be first applied to keep down the interest ; but the interest is never allowed to form a part of the principal, so as to carry interest, for the effect in such case would be to give compound interest, which the law does not allow.
