John Arratt, Esq v John Wilson of Baikie: HL 21 Feb 1722

Appeal – In an action of declarator of trust an interlocutor is pronounced, holding a defender as confessed upon an account of charge and discharge, given in by the pursuer, and he is ordered to denude. Afterwards upon the defender’s application, the Court allowed him ten days longer to give in his accounts, but before the expiration of these ten days, he brings his appeal against certain interlocutors, and amongst others, against the interlocutors holding him as confest; all which are specially affirmed by the House of Peers. After the determination of the first appeal, the defender applied to the Court to have liberty to give in his accounts in ten days, as allowed by the interlocutor before the appeal: but it was found that his right was extinguished, and that he must denude in terms of the decree affirmed by the House of Lords.
