U.S. Supreme Court

Riggs v. Lindsay, 11 U.S. 7 Cranch 500 500 (1813)

Riggs v. Lindsay

11 U.S. (7 Cranch) 500


The defendants having ordered the plaintiff to purchase salt for them and to draw on them for the amount and he having so purchased and drawn, they are bound to accept and pay his bills, and if they do not, he may recover from them the amount of the bills and damages and costs of protest (if he has paid the same) upon a count for money paid, laid out, and expended, and the bills of exchange may be given in evidence on that count.

If one defendant produce in evidence a letter from his co-defendant to the plaintiff, the latter may give in evidence the written declarations of that co-defendant to discredit the letter.

If, after the protest of the bills, the plaintiff sells the salt without orders, it shall not prejudice his right of action, although he render no account of sales to the defendants. chanroblesvirtualawlibrarychanroblesvirtualawlibrary
