Heirs of Wilson  v.  Life and Fire Insurance Company of New York

ERROR to the district court of the United States for the eastern district of Louisiana.

Mr. Butler, for the defendants, moved to dismiss the writ of error.

1. Because no persons are named in the writ as plaintiffs; but they are described, generally, as The Heirs of Nicholas Wilson.

2. That the widow of Nicholas Wilson, who is interested in the suit, did not join in the application for the writ of error.

The motion was opposed by Coxe and Mr. Webster.

Mr. Chief Justice TANEY delivered the opinion of the Court.
