Notes / Description: 

Opinion only. Sharp had sold and gave his title bond to a tract of land that contained a schoolhouse. Sharp later had Hamner sign a release in order for the schoolhouse and lot to be given to the public. Hamner charged Sharp with defrauding him and claiming it as his private property and for offering to sell it. Hamner wanted Sharp to deliver up the release and that he be credited the value of the schoolhouse on his note for the purchase money.
