From Bouvier's Law Dictionary, Revised 6th Ed (1856) :

  CLAUSE, contracts. A particular disposition which makes part of a treaty; of 
  an act of the legislature; of a deed, written agreement, or other written 
  contract or will. When a clause is obscurely written, it ought to be 
  construed in such a way as to agree with what precedes and what follows, if 
  possible. Vide Dig. 50, 17, 77; Construction; Interpretation.
