Notes / Description: 

The plaintiff sued the defendant for $670, the value of two promissory notes that were due in Feb 1862. The defendant alleges that since the notes were meant to be received in Confederate money that makes them invalid, the plaintiff says Confederate money was valid. In the first trial the jury found in favor of the plaintiff.
