An Act to Restore Elizabeth Lamson to Her Law
Article 2, footnote 284
Chapter 10, footnote 6
She (Lamson) was sued as admistratrix of her late husband’s estate for the balance due on a £50 note of hand after she had only been able to scrape together £27.15s. as a partial payment. She lost by default because the lawyer who was supposed to take care of it for her forgot about the matter.
