Ransom v. Winn
THIS case was brought up by appeal from the circuit court of the United States for the District of Columbia, holden in and for the county of Washington.
Ransom filed a petition in a cause then pending in the circuit court of the District of Columbia, and all that the record exhibited with respect to said cause was its title, namely:--
William S. Herrman v. Isabella Davis and Thomas Winn, administrators, Ignatius T. Davis, Francis R. R. Davis et al., heirs at law of Thomas J. Davis, deceased. In chancery.
But upon what ground Herrman filed a bill against the administrators and heirs of Davis, the record did not show. The subsequent proceedings are stated in the opinion of the court.
It was argued by Mr. W. S.C.ox, for the appellant, and Mr. Davis, for the appellees.
Mr. Justice McLEAN delivered the opinion of the court.
