Handwritten brief of James Monroe in the matter of Monroe v. Skinner, a dispute regarding a tract of land in Loudoun County, VA. This brief was presented to the court after the defendant Skinner failed to abide by a prior judgment made by an arbitrator. Monroe claimed that Skinner took advantage of Monroe's absence while Monroe was serving as President. Monroe seeks an injunction to remove Skinner from the land in dispute and prevent further waste. The brief is notarized by Roger C. Heightman, a Justice of the Peace for Washington, D.C. and certified by John Quincy Adams, serving as Secretary of State. Judge Henry St. George Tucker heard the case.
