Miller vs. Hopkins

The Gazette
April 24, 1901

Last week Judge R. B. Dawkins decided the suit of Mrs. Nannie Miller, adm., vs. B. T. Hopkins, in favor of the defendant. This was a case where L. B. Miller, deceased, a few weeks prior to his death, had turned over five bales of cotton to B. T. Hopkins, against which Miller owned a small account before the delivering of the cotton, and thereafter had gotten additional cash and merchandise. Attorneys for the administratrix  held that as no complete sale of the cotton had been made to Hopkins prior to Miller’s death, it should go into the assets of the estate and be subject to the widow’s dowry and other privilege succession debts. Judge Dawkins held otherwise, and rendered judgement in favor of Hopkins for the proceeds of the cotton to the extent of his claim.
