6. Bouvier's Law Dictionary, Revised 6th Ed (1856)

body; it is usual to add the reasons which the protestants have for such a 
dissent. 



7. Bouvier's Law Dictionary, Revised 6th Ed (1856)
PROTEST, contracts. A notarial act, made for want of payment of a promissory 
note, or for want of acceptance or payment of a bill of exchange, by a 
notary public, in which it is declared that all parties to such instruments 
will be held responsible to the holder for all damages, exchanges, 
reexchanges, &c. 
     2. There are two kinds of protest, namely, protest for non-acceptance, 
and protest for non-payment. When a protest is made and notice of the non-
payment or non-acceptance given to the parties in proper time, they will be 
held responsible. 3 Kent, Com. 63; Chit. on Bills, 278; 3 Pardes. n. 418 to 
441; Merl. Repert. h.t.; COID. Dig. Merchant, F 8, 9, 10; Bac. Ab. Merchant, 
&c. M 7. 
     3. There is also a species of protest, common in England, which is 
called protest for better security. It may be made when a merchant who has 
accepted a bill becomes insolvent, or is publicly reported to have failed in 
his credit, or absents himself from change, before the bill he has accepted 
becomes due, or when the holder has any just reason to suppose it will not 
be paid; and on demand the acceptor refuses to give it. Notice of such 
protest must, as in other cases, be sent by the first post. 1 Ld. Raym. 745; 
Mar. 27. 
     4. In making the protest, three things are to be done: the noting; 
demanding acceptance or payment or, as above, better security and drawing up 
the protest. 1. The noting, (q.v.) is unknown to the law as distinguished 
from the protest. 2. The demand, (q.v.) which must be made by a person 
having authority to receive the money. 3. The drawing up of the protest, 
which is a mere matter of form. Vide Acceptance; Bills of Exchange.
