ERROR TO THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE UNITED

STATES FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK

Syllabus

Facts contested in a trial before a jury must be taken in this Court to be as determined by the verdict.

The mere receipt of a bill on payment of money is not an assent to the proposition that the bill contains the whole contract between the parties, but whether it is so or not is a fact to be determined by the jury.
