Notes
-  Summary: Haines gave Hamilton a promissory note for $2,000 and secured the note with a mortgage on two hundred acres. Hamilton sued to foreclose the mortgage after Haines failed to pay. Haines defaulted, and the court ruled for foreclosure. Hamilton noticed an error in the deed, retained Lincoln, and motioned to vacate the judgment and amend his bill to correct the error. The court set aside the judgment. Haines again defaulted, and the court ordered Haines to pay $2,412.33 or it would sell the land. Hamilton assigned the judgment to Rupert. Haines failed to pay, and the court sold the land to Rupert for $2,604.32.
