[D8603E], Letter from Abraham P Schenck to John Canfield Tomlinson, January 8th, 1886

Editor's Notes

I send you a stipulation drawn up by Mr. Strong in the Seyfert-Edison matter. This was Strong's offer; I have not consented or agreed to it. Strong says that all he wants is that TAE shall appear before Col.[?] Boice as Sup. Court Commissioner at this place, and submit to examination touching his property and lights in [the?] action. This is done to have a receiver appointed so as to give Strong a chance to get at the money that was paid to Sheriff Osbrow[?] and whatever other interest TAE may have in this state. Whether this is desirable or not must of course depend on what those interests or rights may be, and touching that, you must judge. ##The decision of the Sup. Court was a surprise to me. I do not think that it is good law, although Judge Depue[?], reported to be one of the best judges on our Sup. Court bench, gave the opinion. ##It may be a question of whether we can bring a writ of error to remove this decision to the Court of Errors for review, under the practice in this State. But if TAE feels like resisting the examination and desires to fight the question further as to the legality of this service of the order on him, and you advise to that effect, I will examine the questions and if satisfied that a writ of error will lie, will carry the case to the Court of Errors.
