Beckwith v. Talbot, 95 U.S. 289 (1877)
Beckwith v. Talbot
95 U.S. 289
1. It is not an absolute rule that collateral papers, made by a party, which are adduced in evidence against him to supply the want of his signature to a written agreement, required by the statute of frauds to be "subscribed by the party chargeable therewith," should, on their face, and without the aid of parol proof, sufficiently demonstrate their reference to such agreement.
2. If the interest and cause of action of the promisees under an agreement be several, each may maintain an action against the promisor.
The facts are stated in the opinion of the Court.
