Overton v. Cheek
63 U.S. (22 How.) 46
Where a writ of error was allowed in open court in the circuit court, but this writ had no seal and was not returned to this Court with the transcript of the record, and two terms afterwards a paper was filed in the clerk's office, in form of a writ of error, but without a seal, and having no authenticated transcript annexed, the cause must be dismissed on motion.
