U.S. Supreme Court

Brick v. Brick, 98 U.S. 514 (1878)

Brick v. Brick

98 U.S. 514


1. Parol evidence is admissible in equity to show that a certificate of stock issued to a party as owner was delivered to him as security for a loan of money. A court of equity will look beyond the terms of an instrument to the real transaction, and when that is shown to be one of security and not of sale, it will give effect to the actual contract of the parties.

2. The rule which excludes such evidence to contradict or vary a written instrument does not forbid an inquiry into the object of the parties in executing and receiving it.

The facts are stated in the opinion of the Court.
