A 3pp. manuscript letter, on 8 1/2 x 11 paper. Folded as for mailing. Very good. Item #44920

A planter, Jonathan T. Faulk, who owed Coxe money, had been transferring property to his children to protect it from seizure to satisfy the debts; McGuire informed Coxe that he had arranged with the children for an alternate payment schedule. McGuire reported that other cases, with some details outlined, had been continued to the next term. He mentioned prominent New Orleans lawyer Lewis Janin and a number of state judges, one of whom McGuire predicted would have to recuse himself from a case involving Coxe who "spent much of his later life defending his land titles against the claims made by Myra Clark Gaines" (Dictionary of Louisiana Biography) and others.
