Three men granted a bill to Stephen Howison, the late father of pursuer Isobel Howison. Additionally, John Howison of Hyndford, defender, wrote Stephen a letter promising that the bill would be paid. Later, Isobel sued John for payment. In response, John argued that the action was barred by a six-year limitation on bills and a seven-year limitation on liability for cautioners.
