In this colorful statement, Philberd Greenweal maintains that he has always an exemplary character and reputation. Representing Greenweal, Taney filed this document with the court against Joseph Magruder who apparently was spreading "false feigned scandalous malicious and opprobrious English words" against Greenweal, including allegations that Greenweal was guilty of felony and horsestealing. Greenweal demanded 500 pounds from Magruder for the accusations.
