In the Argentine appeal?

This weekend I found myself reading an 1829 edition of American Jurist and Law Magazine (it's a long story, but says much about my social life), and came across the following:

The injustice of allowing one creditor to appropriate to his own use the funds which in equity and good conscience belong to all, is so manifest, that it often induces debtors to secrete their property, intending at the outset to have it divided ratably among all their creditors, while in the end they are led to retain the whole for their own use.
