NOTING. The name of the minute made by a notary on a bill of exchange, after it has been presented for acceptance or payment, consisting of the initials of his name, the date of the day, month and year when such presentment was made, and the reason, if any has been assigned, for non-acceptance or non- payment, together with his charge. The noting is not indispensable, it being only a part of the protest; it will not supply the protest. 4 T. R. 175 Chit. on Bills, 280, 398. See Protest.
