And for further plea in this behalf the said
defendant says that the said plaintiffs ought not to
have or maintain their aforesaid action there of against
him, because he says that before the commencement
of this suit, to wit, on the first day of February in the year of our Lord Eighteen hundred and twenty four
he did well and truly pay to the plaintiffs the said sum
of money in the said declaration mentioned, and this
he is ready to verify, wherefore he prays judgment, if
the said plaintiffs ought to have or maintain their
aforesaid action thereof against him &c.
