The owner conveyed part of a tract of land to the plaintiff's granter with the oral agreement that no building should be constructed within seven feet of the part conveyed, and subsequently conveyed the part retained to the defendant's granters with the covenant that no building be erected within seven feet of the part previously conveyed. Defendant began construction of a building which would cover the seven feet in question. Plaintiff sought an injunction. With approval of the finding below that the restriction was imposed for the benefit of the land now owned by the plaintiff, held, that the latter was entitled to relief. Friederick v. Skellet Co.
