Dissolution of Partnership and its Consequences
41   Continuing authority of partners for purposes of winding up




   41. Continuing authority of partners for purposes of winding
 up---After the dissolution of a partnership the authority of each
 partner to bind the firm, and the other rights and obligations of the
 partners, continue (notwithstanding the dissolution) so far as may be
 necessary to wind up the affairs of the partnership and to complete
 transactions begun but unfinished at the time of the dissolution, but
 not otherwise:

   Provided that the firm is in no case bound by the acts of a partner
 who has become bankrupt; but this proviso does not affect the liability
 of any person who has after the bankruptcy represented himself, or
 knowingly suffered himself to be represented, as a partner of the
 bankrupt.
