On 26 April 1889 Sallie W. Burns(?) assigned to the plntff. a $4000 note that had been executed to her by M. M. Wells on 19 Oct. 1888. The note was for 2 tracts of land that Wells purchased from Burns(?). The note, which was due 1 Sept. 1889, had not been paid by the deft. There was a lien on the lands for the payment. Plntff. asked the court to enforce the lien by selling the lands for an amount sufficient to satisfy the note.
