Connaissance du droit, a French term, translated literally as: "knowledge of (one's) right;" in the English language, approximates the meaning of the phrase, "the common law," but perhaps more precisely, "the law, or custom, that is commonly held, or widely understood, to prevail in instances such as this."


"Come [Ce]", perhaps a short form of "Comme Ceci," trans. in this manner, like this.


[-] signifies an illegible character.
