If a member of a mutual insurance company neglects for thirty days after the publication of notice by the directors, and after demand for payment, to pay the sum assessed upon him as his proportion of any loss, the directors may sue for and recover the whole amount of contingent liability, with costs of the suit.  Execution shall only issue for assessments and costs as they accrue, and every such execution must be accompanied by a list of losses for which the assessment is made.  If the whole amount of liability is insufficient to pay the loss occasioned by any fire, the sufferers insured toward making good their respective losses shall receive a proportional share of the whole amount of such liability, according to the sums by them respectively insured.  No member shall be required to pay for a loss occasioned by fire, or inland navigation, more than the whole amount of such liability.
