I've posted about the first pages in an 1899 court document regarding my Tolchinsky family here, here and here. Gersh Tolchinsky (half brother of my great-great grandfather Hillel) had debts, and his family's samovars were taken to pay those debts--however the family entered an 1897 document into evidence to show that Gersh did not own the samovars and in fact had signed them and other property over to his mother and two of his siblings in 1897 for 48 rubles. This is the second half of that 1897 document.
