U.S. Supreme Court

KNOX v. JONES, 2 U.S. 193 (1792)

2 U.S. 193 (Dall.)

Knox et al.

Supreme Court of Pennsylvania

September Term, 1792

This was an action on the case for goods sold and delivered; and the only question agitated upon the trial, was whether the plaintiff was entitled to recover interest? It was proved, that at the time of the sale, the defendant was informed, that it was the course of the trade to give six months credit; or, if cash was paid, to discount five per cent; but that punctuality, and not interest, was the object of the plaintiffs.

By the Court: The established course of the plaintiffs' trade is proved; and, also, the knowledge of the defendant.

Page 2 U.S. 193, 194

It appears, therefore, to be a part of their contract, that interest should commence, at the expiration of the six months credit.

Verdict accordingly.


[Footnote *] This case was decided at Philadelphia, Nisi Prius, held in November, 1792, before the Chief Justice, Shippen and Bradford, Justices.
