Kumarswami Sastri, J.
1. I think the decree of the Mnnsif is correct. The promissory note after reciting that the executant was the guardian of the minor and that Rs. 125 was due by the father of the minor proceeds as follows : 'I shall pay these Rs. 115 to you or order, on demand, with interest at 1 per cent per mensem. I execute the promissory-note in these terms with my consent.' It is signed by the defendant without any qualification or description. It is difficult to see how I can in the face of the express personal promise to pay and the unqualified way in which the note is signed hold that the defendant is not liable on the note. It is open to the guardian to undertake to pay personally a debt due by the estate and there is no want of consideration if (creditor agrees to accept the guardian's personal responsibility instead of having recourse against the estate.
2. Reference has been made to Padma Krishna Chettiar v. Nagamani Ammal  39 Mad. 915, but as pointed out by Wallis, C.J., in Palaniappa Chettiar v. Shanmugam Chettiar  41 Mad. 815 the case does not decide that the executant who was the mother was not personally liable.
3. I have in Ammalu Ammal v. Namagiri Ammal  33 M.L.J. 631 held that a person executing a negotiable instrument will be personally liable unless there is a clear indication in the document that he does not intend to incur personal liability but limits the recourse of the payee or holder to the person whom or the estate which he represents as trustee, executor, guardian or agent.
4. In the present case I see no such limitation.
5. The petition fails and is dismissed with costs.
