Stockton  v.  Ford

THIS was an appeal from the circuit court of the United States for the eastern district of Louisiana.

A full history of the transactions which led to the dispute, is given in the report of the case of Stockton v. Ford, 11 How. 232.

It was submitted, on printed arguments, by Mr. Stockton and Mr. Johnson, for appellant, and by Mr. Duncan, for appellee.

The arguments were so connected with the facts of the case, that it is impossible to give the points by themselves.

Mr. Justice NELSON delivered the opinion of the court.
