Hopkirk v. Bell

8 U.S. (4 Cranch) 164

ON CERTIFICATION FROM THE CIRCUIT

COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF VIRGINIA

Syllabus

The act of limitations of Virginia is no bar to a British creditor's demand on a promissory note, dated 21 August, 1772, although one of the plaintiffs was in the country after the treaty of peace, viz., in 1784, and remained.

It appeared upon the trial, in addition to the facts stated in the former report of the case, 7 U. S. 7 U.S. 454, that Andrew Johnston, one of the partners of the house, trading under the firm of Alexander Spiers, John Bowman & Company, of whom the plaintiff is the surviving partner, came to this country after the treaty of peace in 1783, viz., in the spring of 1784, and died here in 1785, but that no other partner of the firm has been in this country at any time since the treaty of peace. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
