Plaintiff owning a fee deeded it to his wife in 1893. The wife died in 1911, and plaintiff continued lo reside on the land ever since. Shortly after the wife's death plaintiff told defendants, his daughters, that he and his wife had held the land by" entirety, and that he was, therefore, the sole owner by right of survivorship. Defendants never learned of the deed to the wife until the instigation of this suit. Plaintiff claimed that he had reacquired ownership by adverse possession, and brought a bill to cancel the deed to his wife and remove the cloud from his title. Held, plaintiff's possession could not become adverse until it changed from one of permission to one asserted as a matter of right, hostile and adverse, and relief ought not to be granted anyway because plaintiff did not come into equity with clean hands.
