Notes / Description: 

Powel sued the rail road for the loss of a box containing goods headed for Union Springs, Alabama. Powel was moving his family from Tennessee to Alabama and shipped his household goods in multiple boxes. One box never arrived. Apparently the boxes had to change cars during the trip and the railroad alleged that the charges for changing cars was not paid.
