marine store dealer (for whom Mr ATTER appeared) sued Wm MALKINSON for £1
10s, being the balance for money lent. Defendant denied having got the
money, and also having paid anything on account. His Honour said he had
examined the plaintiff's book, and he had not the slightest doubt but that
the defendant owed the money. It was shocking for a man to come into court
and tell such falsehoods as he had done; such a person deserved no sympathy.
Defendant said he was a labourer earning 18s per week, and an order was made
for payment at the rate of 3s per month.
