Legal entanglements
Thu Apr 22, 11:34

Herewith the following quotations in full:

The First National Bank in Wichita filed suit against Rainey & Mannen as cosigners on November 24, 1874. A verdict was rendered against them on January 29, 1875.

Bartholomew stated that Mannen did not arrive in Wichita until September. The fact that he signed a note on July 7 disproves this and makes it apparent that he atrrived with the herd or soon thereafter. He apparently returned to Texas soon after signing the note, then went back to Wichita in September to settle accounts.

His legal entanglements in business matters continued in Wichita when a notice appeared in the Seoptember 10, 1874 issue of the Wichita Eagle stating a suit had been filed against M. Clements & Co. for one hundred forty-nine dollars and thirty -five cents by W. A. Thomas and W. L. Thomas, partners doing business as W. A. Thomas & Co. The defendants in the case, scheduled to be heard October 1, were Mannen, who was incorrectly listed as Manley Clements, Jim Clements, Ed Glover and J. W. Glover. It is unlikely that the case went to trial, since cattlemen settled accounts soon after they sold their herd.
