Notes / Description: 

Original bill was filed when a breach of contract by N. A. Lackey occurred in 1927. The defendants bound themselves in a contract to furnish the plaintiffs' with $5,000 worth of building material and lumber and to use their best efforts to obtain a loan on their property if they didn't have the funds to pay the defendants when building was complete. The plaintiffs later failed to carry out their terms of the contract by paying 15% of the material not used, or $750.
