There must be an agreement between the partners.

Even in absence of an agreement  to the contrry you can recover the amount , more tahn your share from the other partners. The Partnership Act is quite clear in making the partners personally and jointly liable for their acts and for compensation of the partners if he contributes more than his share. This liability is only avoided when there is an agreement to the contrary.
