Martin v. Cole, 104 U.S. 30 (1881)
Martin v. Cole
104 U.S. 30
ERROR TO THE SUPREME COURT
OF THE TERRITORY OF COLORADO
1. In an action against a party upon his endorsement in blank of a negotiable promissory note, evidence of a contemporaneous parol agreement that the endorsement was without recourse is inadmissible.
2. The ruling in Wills v. Claflin, 92 U. S. 135, construing a statute which requires the assignee of a promissory note to exhaust his remedy against the maker before proceeding against the assignor reaffirmed.
