Notes / Description: 

Mrs. Brown sought to borrow $300 from Florence Watson who agreed to the loan--if Brown would pay $15 a month interest for twelve months. Things went downhill from there. When the Browns did not pay the entire sum by year's end, Watson demanded a $400 note at 10 per cent interest per month. Other plaintiffs: Albert Brown, W. T. Wilson, and Mrs. W. T. Wilson. The Browns and Wilsons charged usury.
