Coe was living in Texas and Boone was living in Kentucky. In the fall of 1909, Coe and Boone made an oral contract whereby Coe would rent to Boone his farm in Texas for a year to begin from the date of Boone’s arrival. Coe agreed that if Boone would leave their homes and businesses in Kentucky and move to Coe’s farm in Texas and take over its management, Coe would have a dwelling built and ready for their arrival. Coe also agreed to furnish material for which Boone could construct a barn. Boone was to cultivate the crops for a portion of them. Boone moved to Texas– the travel took 55 days. Coe failed to have the house ready for Boone and failed to furnish the material for the barn. On December 6th, Coe refused to permit Boone to occupy the house and premises or to cultivate the land. Boone returned to Kentucky. Boone sued to recover damages of $1,387.80.
