Notes / Description: 

In 1801 John & Ephraim Davidson created a 50/50 partnership, splitting all profits, and co-owning assets. John then purchased 300 acres of land and many other business dealings resulting in debt. Ephraim sued stating that this risky behavior was not in the best interest of the equity of the partnership.
