As between himself and the bailor, the bailee must account to the bailor for everything that he may recover from a third person beyond his own interest1, and must therefore pay over to him any sum which he has recovered as representing the value of the chattel, its permanent deterioration, or the cost of repairing it if he has not himself repaired it. If the bailee sues, therefore, he ought in general to claim and be awarded the full damages, for then no further claim can be brought by the bailor
