Copy of instructions asked by PettisPettis

The defendants counsel then moved the court to instruct
the jury that there being a written agreement between
the parties proved they must find for the defendant refused

As to what the court then said concerning
the proof of the existence of a written agreement I believe it was that ``the court will not give this instruction - as the proof is very vague''

``The defendants counsel then moved the court to in
struct the jury that if they believe from the evidence
that there is a written agreement between the parties
relation to the subject matter of this suit, they must
find for the defendant.'' (Refused)

And the court then instructed the jury that if they believe
the argument courts such as is in writing
and in the or power of the plaintiff
they ought to find for the defendant
such were the words of the court according
to my recollection
