  INSURED, contracts. The person who procures an insurance on his property. 
       2. It is the duty of the insured to pay the premium, and to represent 
  fully and fairly all the circumstances relating to the subject-matter of the 
  insurance, which may influence the determination of the underwriters in 
  undertaking the risk, or estimating the premium. A concealment of such facts 
  amounts to a fraud, which avoids the contract. 1 Marsh. Ins. 464; Park, Ins.
