      Benjamin Fendall vs Francis Meeke, Ex:r of Thomas Harrison. TrCa. Non pross per defect Repl'n.
      Francis Meeke, late of CC, planter, executor of the Will of Thomas Harrison, late of CC, decd, was attached to answer unto Benjamin Fendall of a plea of trespass upon the case.. Then sd Benjamin, by Philip Key, his atty, complains that whereas the sd Thomas, in his lifetime, to wit, on [blank month and day], 1733, at CC, owed sd Benjamin 931 lbs of tobacco, being for sundry articles lying properly in account [see below], and as a consequence, to sd Benjamin promised to pay sd sum when requested. But Thomas, in his lifetime, and Francis, since his death, sd sum, or any part thereof, to sd Benjamin, has not paid, although often requested, sd Francis, in particular, on Nov 11, 1735 at CC, and at divers other days and times since, to the damage of sd Benjamin 1863 lbs of tobacco and thereof he brings suit.

      1732. By carried to Liber B - 477.
      Errors Excepted this Nov 16, 1735 per Benja: Fendall, late Sher: CC.
      CC, Nov 15, 1735. Then came Benjamin Fendall and made oath that the above account is, to the best of his knowledge, just and true, and that he never recd any part thereof, nor any satisfaction for the same. Sworn in open Court. Wit - Sam: Hanson, Cl:.
      And the afd Francis, by Sam:l Young, his atty, comes and prays licence thereof to imparl until next Jun CC Court, and he has it, and same day is given sd Benjamin, at which day, sd Francis, by his atty, prays further licence thereof to imparl until next Aug CC Court, and he has it, and same day is given sd Benja: here. And now here, at sd Aug Court, came the sd Benjamin and sd Francis by their attorneys, and sd Benjamin, by his atty, prays that the sd Francis to his Declaration afd against him may answer, and the sd Francis, by his atty, comes and says that he, sd Benjamin, his action afd, against him, to have or maintain ought not because he says that sd Benjamin did on [blank date], at CC, refuse to swear or affirm that no part of the tobacco mentioned in the account referred to in the Plaintiff's Declaration, has been paid, nor anything else given or delivered towards satisfaction thereof. And sd Francis further says that the sd Benjamin did, on [blank date], at CC, sue & implead the sd Francis as Ex:r, although Francis did, on [blank date], at CC, offer to the sd Benjamin to pay what appears to be really due on the account, being so proved either by oath or affirmation as afd, wherefore sd Francis prays judgment if sd Benja: ought not to be nonsuit and to pay the full cost.
      And afterwards, at sd Aug Court, the afd Benjamin, although called, came not. Ordered that sd Benjamin take nothing by his writ afd, and that the sd Francis go thereof without day, and that sd Francis do recover against sd Benjamin 185 lbs of tobacco for his costs and charges.
