2141. The mandatary is accountable for the acts of the person he has appointed without authorization as his substitute as if he had performed them himself; where he was authorized to make such a substitution, he is accountable only for the care with which he selected his substitute and gave him instructions.
In all cases, the mandator has a direct action against the person appointed by the mandatary as his substitute.
