These defendants state, that of their own knowledge they know but little of the case, or the manner of acquiring title by the complainants or them under whom they claim and they therefor require the complainants to make out their case by strict proof. … Defendants insist upon the matters of defense as contained in their original answer which they consider as fully meeting complainants amendment and pray to be dismissed with their costs etc.
