Petitioner William Henry Ralston advanced substantial sums to Hugh Lamont while both were serving with the 100th regiment of foot in India. After Hugh Lamont died, Ralston sought payment from Hugh’s widow. John Lamont, Hugh’s brother, also sought payment of certain debts. Because the available funds were not adequate to pay both claims, multiplepoindings were raised to adjudicate them. Case documents include several financial accounts.
