Carter v. Burr

Argued November 24-25, 1884

Decided March 16, 1885

113 U.S. 737


On the facts in this case, it is decided that the promissory note held by the appellee, secured by mortgage of premises in the City of Washington, executed by D., the maker of the note, to the appellant, was not paid by the transactions set forth in the opinion of the Court, but remained in force, with the right to participate in the proceeds arising from a sale under the mortgage.

The facts which make the case are stated in the opinion of the Court. The case was argued at the same time with Carter v. Carusi, 112 U. S. 478, which related to another note secured by the same mortgage.
