Notes / Description: 

Appellants, partners Willis and Crittenden, entered into a building contract with appellees to build a house. Crittenden borrowed $600.00 from his bank on the strength of the building contract. However, Crittenden died before a bond was put in place. Appellants are arguing that, since Crittenden was the most capable partner and he died before execution of the bond, that the sureties should not be held.
