James Scott Petition

 Collection
Identifier: MS-1555
Abstract

In this petition to the Knox County Court, James Scott explains how he came to be in debt to Douglas Olliver, declares that he has attempted to repay this obligation, and accuses Olliver of refusing to accept his payment in order to extract a larger settlement. Scott asks that the relevant paperwork be collected and examined at the court's next session so that right may be done. The document is also signed by the court's clerk, Charles McClung.
