Summary

Autograph document signed "Parks & Lincoln p.d."
Summary: Beverly, Stone, and Burt agreed to purchase a horse from Loomis for $1,200. If Loomis delivered the horse in good condition, Beverly, Stone, and Burt would pay Loomis $50 on delivery, $575 on December 25, 1858, and $575 on December 25, 1859. After Beverly, Stone, and Burt failed to pay the second installment, Loomis sued to collect the debt. Beverly, Stone, and Burt, represented by Lincoln, pleaded that the contract also guaranteed that the stallion would be a "good foal getter," which it was not, thus depreciating its value. The jury found for Lacey, the administrator of Loomis's estate, and awarded $150.
