File #1142.
Judge Samuel M. Wilson,
Lexington, Ky.
Dear Sir,—

Plaintiffs are asking for our answer in this
case, and I am herewith handing you sug.estions of same.

I have heretofore sent you a copy of the petition, and am
herewith handing you a copy of the amended petition.

I would, also, call your attention to the
Court of Appeals' opinion in this case, 157 S. W. 726, (154
Ky. Rep. 345). You will notice that this answer contains
considerable matter of evidence, and possibly same would be
stricken, if a motion Was made to that effect, but I do not
believe the attorney for plaintiffs will make any motions
much against this pleading. This is but my suggestions, and
you will please make any changes or amendments that you think
proper, and return to me at once, so that I may file this
pleading next week.

In regard to this matter, will say that
Hackett, the Executor, will testify that at the time the ne—
gotiations were made, he did not know for whom the property
was being purchased; that he consulted with N. H. Witherspoon,
President of the Winchester Bank, J. M. Stevenson, an attor-
ney, J. D. Jones, an owner of real estate,and one or two
real estate agents, and all advised that the price paid was
an unusally good one,and to take it at once.

He will further testify that at that time the
estate was in debt more than $600.00; that the family had
nothing to live on, and that he was advancing them money, and
had stood for some of their grocery bills. He will further
testify that he stated to E. S. Jouett, at the time the nego-
tiations were being made, that the estate was in debt more
than $600.00, but, upon investigation, I find that all of
this indebtedness Was not that of the decedent, but possibly
$300.00 of it had been created since Hickerson's death, all
of which was for necessaries, such as provision and clothing
to enable the family to live; that they would come to him and
appeal for provision and clothing, and he would purchase them,
and charge them up against the estate.


I do not think he explained to Mr. E. S. Jouett the
nature of the indebtedness, but simply advised that the estate
was more than $600.00 in debt. It is a fact though, and
Hackett will be able to prove it, that all of the indebtedness
after the death of the decedent, was incurred for the abso-
lute necessities of the family, to enable them to live, and
was done at their instance and request. We will be able to
prove conclfihsively all of the allegations of our answer.

Please let me hear from you as early as possible
in regard to this.

Yours ve truly?7

none other. The plaintiffs say that they did not know of the
