Notes / Description: 

C. C. Miller dec. originally brought suit against the defendants for debt due by promissory note but died while the case was pending.The suit was now being prosecuted by the executors of C. C. Miller's estate. The defendants deny owing said debt and claim to have already paid it in Confederate money. The matter in controversy appears to be whether the contract was written to allow payment in said Confederate notes.
