Notes / Description: 

In 1907, the defendant entered into a contract with the Bristol Telephone Co. who agreed to furnish switchboard connections to the Def. subscribers for a dollar per call for a ten year term. The contract was never expressly renewed, but the parties continued the same service. After 1924, the defendant was indebted to the plaintiff for $318 for calls connected, reported at 212, but the Pla. believes the number is higher. The defendant failed to settle their debt on the account.
