Lawyer John F. Fisk was elected to the Kentucky Senate in 1857 and in time became Speaker. This booklet comprises Fisk's 1871 argument in the Kentucky Court of Appeals seeking to reverse a decision dismissing the Appellants' 1870 petition against Robert B. Bowler, his heirs, administrator, et. al. It was argued that Bowler, a director of the Covington & Lexington Railway Company, connived to drive the railroad into foreclosure so that he and others could become purchaser and owner. An initial suit, brought by the Corporation that had built the railway, was brought against Bowler in 1865. By the time of this appeal, Bowler was dead. The cover of the booklet states that the argument, delivered November 15, 1871, was reported by Benn Pittman. The booklet is in good condition, save for issues noted. No copy is listed in WorldCat, although other material relating to the Covington & Lexington Railway litigation is listed. Item #47447
