[6] Sometimes again the statement of facts can be dispensed with only by one party, who is generally the plaintiff, either because it is sufficient for him to make a simple summary of his case or because it is more expedient for him to do so. It may, for instance, suffice to say, “I claim repayment of a certain sum of money which was lent on certain conditions” or “I claim a legacy in accordance with the terms of the will.” It is for the other party to explain why these sums are not due to the plaintiff.
