Notes / Description: 

The plaintiffs owned a tract of land that they deeded to the defendant in exchange for another tract of land per a written agreement. However, Hickman Kile's son wrote the deed for the tracts of land to Archibald, which contained 15 to 20 acres more than the agreement stated. The plaintiffs did not realize the discrepancy until after they registered the deed. The plaintiffs sought correction of the deed in accordance with the original agreement.
