Notes
-  Summary: Hawley gave Barbour a promissory note for $500. Barbour assigned the note to Kennedy and Julian. Hawley failed to pay, and Kennedy and Julian retained Lincoln and sued in an action of assumpsit seeking $700. Apparently, the parties reached a settlement, and the court dismissed the case.
