Worthington v. Mason, 101 U.S. 149 (1879)
Worthington v. Mason
101 U.S. 149
1. No error is committed in refusing a prayer for instructions consisting of a series of propositions, presented as an entirety, if any of them should not be given to the jury.
2. When error is assigned upon the instructions given and those refused, the bill of exceptions must set forth so much of the evidence as tends to prove the facts out of which the question is raised to which the instructions apply.
3. Where, therefore, the bill of exceptions embodies only the instructions given and those refused, this Court will not reverse the judgment.
ERROR to the Circuit Court of the United States for the Eastern District of Arkansas.
The facts are sufficiently stated in the opinion of the Court.
