. Adrriitr of January ISth an article entitled
the late Win. Wood, who continued in possession
till the day of his death, in June, 1&69. In
winding up the estate, the executors found sev
eral settlements of accoant between the parties,
in which the rent had been pxd partly by small
cash payments, and partly by sundry deliveries of
the wares of the house, to the proprietor himself,
and to others on his order; and when, at the end
of the quarter, the amount of th bill had been
j larger than the rent, a note of hand had been
j given for the balance, and taten into account at
t the next settleinenti Thus matters went on Tor
1 some time'; but for more than a year before Mr.
, Wends death there appears to have been no
j settlement of accounts between the two, and tbe
executors fouud on the deceased 3 books, against
: the proprietor, a debit of fourteen hundred dollars
. and upwards for cash, sad, a3 usual, goods
farnished to the proprietor and .others on his
order. In due time he presented to the executors
j a bill for seven hundred ,aad seventeen dollars
seventeen cents, llleged to be due for rent, and
demanded payment: in full, iraespective or, and
acouKtng tbe amotint due by him to deceased,
; This demand the execntors reatsted ; they offered.
! Tiew 0r existing Jaws, to exchange receipts in
fall, being willing u, sacriEce the bjbnce due by
the proprietor of the house to tbe estate ; but
this would not suit his purpose. he must have
the whole amount of his bill, and tbe entire set
off cf SHOO against him -be abandoned, altbqcgh
not a single item of the account was questioned ;
and it was to carry.this measolt that be invoked
the aid of the law, and brought suit against tbe
