McGillin v. Bennett
Argued December 5-6, 1889
Decided December 16, 1889
132 U.S. 445
A contract between the parties as to the sale of, and payment for, a ranch and cattle, interpreted as to the mode of payment provided for.
Where a defendant, on a trial, introduces, under the objection of the plaintiff, parol evidence of what occurred in negotiations between the parties prior to the making of a contract between them with a view to the construction of the contract, he cannot, on a writ of error to review a judgment against him, allege as error the admission of such evidence.
The case is stated in the opinion.
