Notes / Description: 

Judgment had been rendered in favor of Melling and against Joseph Williams for $496.48 and the costs. Easley was security for Williams for the cost of the appeal and was sued because judgment was rendered against him for debt as well. Easley alleged that a written note did not give J.B. Jones, justice of the peace for Grainger county, authority to bind him for the debt but for costs only.
