The plaintiff, a painter employed by defendant, the proprietor of a hotel, to redecorate a certain room therein, found a roll of old style bills under a rug in that room. He turned the money over to the defendant who stated that he "knew the true owner thereof," and that he would deliver to such owner. The owner never was located, and apparently defendant made no effort to locate him. About two years after the finding plaintiff demanded the money. The demand being refused, action was started. Held, plaintiff should recover. Erickson v. Sinykin, (Minn. 1947) 26 N.W. (2d) 172.
