Helen F. Childs & G. Pierce
Administrators & Administrix of V. Childs Deceased, Plaintiffs
This case has come before this court, from the Circuit Court of Delaware
County, Iowa, directing me that I give the parties notice and proceed in
the trial of said case that the Judgment rendered by me in the case of V.
Childs vs Con Sullivan docketed on page 21 of this docket has been
reversed by said Circuit Court on Writ of Error before said Circuit Court.
Whereupon I thus day issued notice to debt returnable on the 23rd inst at
11a.m. That unless he appeared at that time in this Court and make defense
to the claim against him the case on said page 21 Judgment would be
rendered against him for the whole amount with interest and costs. I was
also directed by said Circuit Court to notify said plaintiffs, but Blair &
Crosby attys for plaintiffs wave all need of written notice to Plaintiffs.
[1873 May 23rd]
Same 13th inst Said notice to debtor is returned by Constable Otis duly
served on debtor in Hazel green Tp. also also sub for B. F. Trimble 11
A.M. Case called, and altho the Court waits until noon yet the debt maker
no appearance, but plaintiffs appear by their attys Blair & Crosby. It
appears from the testimony that debtor owes the plaintiffs $31.00 and 6
perct interest from July 3d,1871 on an assigned account from B.F. Trimble,
being an account for work done at breaking for debtor. It is therefore
adjudged that the debtor is in default and is ordered by the court that
the plaintiffs have and recover of the debtor, Con Sullivan, judgment for
the sum of thirty four 50/100 dollars & 6 perct interest from May
3d, 1873 and costs tuned in $18.40 items of costs below. Execution ordered
