Notes / Description: 

The document is a brief for the complainant, which insisted that the Massengills repay a $4,000 loan. The Massengills' case seems to rest upon an interpretation of the Act of 1891, which regulated the in-state business of foreign corporations. The Massengills claimed that the appellant still owed them half of the loan amount, and they demanded the money. The bank stated that G. D. was "wholly destitute of principle, and that integrity is foreign to his nature." He lacked "all manly principles."
