Title

Oct 4, 1855 Greenberry Smith response to second complaint, two pages

Description

Two pages long, this document outlines Greenberry Smith's response to Letitia's former complaint that Greenberry Smith sold and otherwise converted her cattle. On the first page of his response, dated October 4th, 1855, he claims to have no knowledge information, or belief sufficient to enable him to answer Letitia's complaint. He goes on to say that "if any such cattle were the property of said Letitia Carson that said Letitia Carson is indebted to the estate of the decedent [sic] in the sum of ($500) Five hundred dollars for the securing and rearing of said cattle from 1845 to the time of said sale which he offers to offset against any sum which said Plff may recover in this action." This page ends with an acknowledgment that Greenberry is speaking the truth. It is continued onto the second page.

The following page contains the signatures of Jas H. Slater clerk of the District Court of the Oregon Territory as well as Greenberry Smith dated October 4th, 1855.
