Summary

Appears to be in Lincoln's hand.
Summary: Thomas Allsup and William Allsup gave Springer a promissory note for $336.39. Springer assigned the note to P. Weyrich and Company, who sued in an action of assumpsit after Allsup and Allsup failed to pay. Allsup and Allsup retained Lincoln and argued that the note was for the last payment for a saw mill but that the mill had not been completed on time. Springer had said that the mill could saw three thousand feet per day, but once finished, it could not saw even two thousand feet per day. Allsup and Allsup argued that the consideration of the note had failed. The jury found for Weyrich and Co. and awarded $356.
