Washington v. Opie, 145 U.S. 214 (1892)
Washington v. Opie
Argued April 8, 11, 1892
Decided May 2, 1892
145 U.S. 214
Payments of bonds secured by a mortgage of real estate in Virginia, made in that state during the civil war to the personal representatives of the mortgagee who had deceased, partly in Confederate notes and partly in Virginia bank notes issued prior to the war, are held to have been made and received in good faith, and the transactions to have been known to the children of the deceased, and to have been accepted and acquiesced in by them for so long a time as to preclude any interference in their behalf by a court of equity.
The case is stated in the opinion.
