admission defined in 1939 year

admission - Admission (Lat. admittere, to let in);
admission - Term used in English law. In civil proceedings it is equivalent to confession in criminal proceedings; i.e. it is a statement made by a party (plaintiff, defendant, pursuer, etc.) to an action or suit, and is always evidence against the party who makes it. All things written by a party are admissions, e.g. entries made by him in books of account; but a verbal admission can be testified to by anyone who heard it made.

An admission may be made by gesture or conduct as well as by words.; and an admission made by an agent, while acting in the matter for which he is employed, is evidence against his principal. But an admission made by an agent after his employment has ceased cannot be used against the principal. An admission is generally conclusive against the person who made it, unless he shows that he spoke or wrote under a misapprehension. As a general rule, admissions by a wife are not evidence against a husband, but they will be evidence if she made them while acting as his agent.

In the Church of England the admission of a clerk to the living to which he has been presented by the patron is performed by the bishop of the diocese, and the clerk cannot enter on the cure of souls without it.
