     In Covenant
     The defendant John and having been arrested at the suit of the  
     plaintiff is this cause, the same is ordered to abate as to  
     him, and the defendant Thomas for plea saith that he hath  
     performed the covenants in the declaration mentioned, and  
     for further plea saith that at the time of executing the said  
     covenant he was an infant under the age of 21 years, to which  
     last plea the plaintiff replied generally, and for further  
     replication saith that since the defendant came of full age he  
     hath notified and confirmed the said covenant, to which the  
     defandant rejoined generally, and to the first plea the  
     plaintiff replies that the defendant hath broken his covenant  
     in this, that the defendant hath not conveyed to him the  
     quantity of one hundred and eighty eight acres, and because he  
     hath conveyed in said covenant nine and an half acres the  
     property of Thomas Givens to which the defendant rejoined  
     generally, and therefore came a Jury to wit: John McDowell,  
     William Epperson, James Hill, Charles Epperson, John  
     Cunningham, David Buchanan, Christopher Morris, Peter Hall,  
     James McGonegall, Joseph Pippett, David Moore and Walter Heron  
     and being elected tried and sworn the truth to speak upon  
     the issue joined upon their oath to say that the defendant is  
     not guilty as in pleading he hath alledged.  Therefore It is  
     considered by the court that the plaintiff take nothing by his  
     bill, but for his false clamour be in mercy & c, and the said  
     defendant go thereof without day, and recover against the  
     plaintiff his costs by him about his defence in this behalf  
     expended.  Whereupon the plaintiff prayed an appeal to the  
     next district Court to be holden in Staunton which was granted  
     him on his entering into bond with sufficient security in the  
     Clerks office in the penalty of one hundred dollars  
     conditioned as the law directs, which was accordingly done.
     Memorandum:  At the trial of this cause a Bill of Exceptions  
     was tendered by the plaintiffs counsil in these words to wit  
     "On the trial of this cause the plaintiff introduced a plat of  
     the land in the declaration mentioned made by the Surveyor of  
     the County in these words to wit: " a plat of & c. " together  
     with said Surveyor of the County to establish the breaches  
     in the declaration & c. mentioned.  This platt was objected to  
     as improper evidence, not having been made by order of Court  
     the defendants not having notice and not being present,  
     consequentially exparty.  The Court ware of openion that the  
     platt ought not to be read as evidence.  The plaintiff then  
     offered to examine the Surveyor to prove he had been round  
     the courses in the deed mentioned at the time he made the  
     plat, had seen the courses and calculated the contents.  This  
     evidence was also objected to on the same principle and  
     rejected by the Court, to which openion of the Court the  
     plaintiff by his attorney excepts and prays that the same may  
     be signed & c." and which is done accordingly.

     Nathaniel Hunter and James McNutt junior who being elected

     non performance of that assumption to twelve pounds after  
     deducting five pounds thirteen shillings with Interest from  
     the first day of September 1794 and one penny damages  
     whereupon he the said defendant saith that the Court ought not  
     proceed to Judgment upon the verdict aforesaid for the reasons  
     following Donaghe against McGarven.  And that the defendant by  
     his attorney prays that the Court would not enter into  
     Judgment upon the verdict of the Jury aforesaid, because he  
     says that the same verdict does not persue the declaration but  
     is informal and illegal and such that the Court here cannot  
     render Judgment upon; and because the declaration names the  
     paper offered in evidence and filed in the cause, a promissory  
     note, whereas it appears to be a single bill and thus  
     described would not be a bar to future action, for these and  
     many other errors appearing in the record he prays that the  
     Judgment of the Court may be stayed and arrested" and because  
     the Court will advise upon day is given the parties aforesaid  
     have until the next court of quarter sessions.
