Account B Brooks vs Brooks Comr case Filed 15 Aug 1842 This report is excepted to because the Commr has allowed the estate of Fielding Brooks a credit for the bond of $353 in 1821. The deed of $1826 is conclusive that no debt was due to Fielding Brooks at that time unless it was included in the $400 mentioned in the deed for by that deed the [son?] for $400 and the maintenance [illegible] his father and of any others debt had been then due it would have been recited. It is also excepted to because the estate of Fielding Brooks is allowed [heirs?] for the slaves. Fielding Brooks having wholly failed in his contract to maintain his father & mother his estate is entitled to nothing but his $400 with interest from the time of its payment (1826) It is also excepted to for the allowance for the use of the articles of [illegible] and I ask that these exception be considered as made to all the accounts in the case containing these charges. James [illegible] for pltff Sep 23 1842 agt the bond and its interest the difference of the hires and cost of maintenance should be set off ie $120 vs $40 per annum during the life of Fielding Brooks
