Appellant testified that the paper was read over to appellee just before he signed it, and that appellee took it and looked it over closely. Appellant denied that he notified appellee to come to the bank the day before, denied the conversation testified to by appellee as having occurred in the afternoon after the meeting in the bank, denied the conversation on Monmouth boulevard, and denied each of the other conversations to which appellee testified. Appellant testified that he bought this stock from his father in good faith and paid him for it; that at the meeting on May 26, 1900, appellee was not claiming that he owned this stock, but claimed that he was not getting enough out of his father's personal property; that appellee was not making any claim to any stock, but wanted an amount of money. Carney testified that he was present in the directors' room of the bank when Wilkins Seacord divided up various notes and accounts between appellant and appellee; that the next morning appellee came to his house and claimed that he was not getting enough in the division; that his father had included a note that had been paid; that he had turned back this stock to his father, and thereby had really paid the note, and therefore he thought he ought to have something additional beyond the $4,000; that he was present at the home of Wilkins Seacord in the afternoon of May 26, 1900, more
