SUPREME JUDICIAL COURT
FOR THE COMMONWEALTH — BEFORE THE
FULL BENCH — RESCRIPTS SENT DOWN
Samuel Oakman vs. Alvan Rogers et al. Action of contract in which a breach of agreement was alleged. The contract was claimed to have been made in certain correspondence between the parties, which was submitted as evidence in the Court below. The case was reported for the decision of the Supreme Judicial Court on the question whether the letters constituted a contract or a sufficient memorandum in writing to satisfy the requirements of the statute of frauds. The judgement of the full Court is for the defendant. The rescript is: The letters do not show that the parties ever agreed on a definite contract, and are not a sufficient memorandum to take the case out of the statue of frauds. S. C. Darling for plaintiff; D. F. Linscott for defendant.
