- - Summary: McDaniel sold 117 acres of land to Thomas for $3,000. Thomas paid $300 down and gave McDaniel three promissory notes for the balance. After Thomas failed to pay the notes, McDaniel retained Lincoln and Herndon and sued Thomas to enforce the sale of the land. McDaniel asked the court to permit him to complete the contract by giving Thomas a deed, to allow a vendor's lien, to sell enough of the land to pay the notes, and to order Thomas to pay rent for using the property. The parties later reached a settlement, and McDaniel dismissed the case and paid the costs.
