The effect of this acceptance of rent was to constitute the defendants tenants under the plaintiff. Consequently at the date of the suit, the plaintiff was not competent to eject the defendants as trespassers. In this view, it is unnecessary to consider whether there was a recognition by the plaintiff of the defendants as the holders of the original tenancy.
