DEAR SIR, I am puzzled to know how the law stands respecting appeals in equity cases, from circuit court to supreme court by defendants. Must the defendant in all cases give bond to fulfil the final decree ? I know not what construction to put, in this respect, on the provisions of the act of March 3, 1803. On looking to the only case of the kind in which I have been concerned, namely, Oilman v. Brown, I find no such bond given. When you have read this, will you say in two words, how it is ? I suppose it is somewhere settled. A line this afternoon or to-morrow morning will greatly oblige
Your often obliged,
