Held, that the understanding of the parties might be shown from the nature of the transaction and the attendant circumstances as satisfactorily as from the language used, and particularly that it might be shown from the length of time during which the contracts had to run before maturing, A*Note 548R that accordingly when bonds of a railroad company were issued in May,payable at dates varying from seven to thirteen years afterwards, the inference was justified that the company intended at the A*Note 548R of issuing them that the bonds should be paid in lawful money instead of Confederate notes.

The interest payable on a bond issued as above-mentioned follows the character of the principal, and is payable in like A*Note 548R.

The bonds were payable to the company last above mentioned or bearer, and were secured by a deed of trust of A*Note 548R railroad, buildings, and franchise of the company executed to Joseph Wilson and Anderson Mitchell. The deed stipulated that in case the company failed to pay the principal and interest on the bonds as they became due, the trustees should, upon request of the holders of the A*Note 548R or of their guarantor, proceed to sell A*Note 548R property, or so much thereof as might be necessary, and apply the proceeds of the sale to the payment of the bonds.
