Bill to dissolve a partnership, for an accounting of partnership's affairs, division of partnership assets, for the appointment of a receiver to take charge of the affairs of the partnership and to enjoin interference with the receiver in the performance of his duties, filed by the appellee against the appellants. The demurrer of the respondents being overruled this appeal results.
The bill avers the creation of the relation on November 1, 1952, to end on October 31, 1955, but avers that the partnership was doing business on November 28, 1955, the day on which the bill was filed.

The grounds of the demurrer taking the point that the bill is multifarious as well as those pointing out that the averments of the bill are vague, indefinite and uncertain are clearly without merit and were properly overruled.
According to the authority of Williams v. Williams, supra, and the cases there cited, and Ard v. Abele, 226 Ala. 611, 148 So. 318, the bill is not subject to any of the grounds of demurrer argued in brief filed here on behalf of appellants.
The decree overruling the demurrer is affirmed.
