Notes / Description: 

Add. defendants: D. B. Smith, W. D. Meriweather, R. Lester, & John Lockert. In 1884, the parties entered into a contract for the purchase of a tract of land for $2,200. The plaintiff paid in cash $933 and executed notes to pay the balance over two years. The defendant convinced the plaintiff to give him one of the notes for $300 early and in return he would execute a note of sale for another part of the land and give credit for the funds towards his balance, but he failed to produce the deed.
