Where the principal knows of the agent's intention at the time of his employment to delegate, or subsequently acquiesces in the delegation, the rule prohibiting delegation can have no application1. Where there is a ratification by the principal of the acts of the sub-agent, the sub-agent becomes jointly liable with the agent to the principal2. Ratification or adoption of the delegation may be evident from the conduct of the parties3.
