"John T. Spence vs. U. C.
Plyley, Adm'r ol John Plyley,
deceased. This was an action
on a prorniseory note exechted
b Judge John Plyley in his
lifetime to his brolher-.'u law,
the plaintiff. Th parties1 had
been engaged in sorrJe spefcula
lions where tbe plaintiff Itir
nished Ihe money, under in
agretddsnt to hare one-hall the
profits, or 20 per cent, on his
money. lie ebose the latter,
and Judge Plyley 'settled with
him on that basis, paying him
hack different sums l money
at "various times, alid' finally
settling the balanee with the
note' on which the Suit was
brought: 'the defence of usury
is set up by the Administrator,
it being' claimed by him 'that
the original principal arid legal
intereat has already beeirpaid,
and that the note 011 which Buil
s brought ia entirely for usury.
I'he plaintiff claimed that the
original agreement 011 which
the money was furnished , was
in tbe nature ol a partnership
and the settle ment cn which
the dote was given wais be
tween partners, and that there
lore Hie 20 per cent. 'paid by
Judge Pl'j ley was plaintiff's
share of (ho profits instead ol
usury. The jury found fOr the
