1. It appears from the evidence that on December 11, 1956, the defendant, Mr. Ragsdale, on the recommendation of a friend, Mr. Carlton H. Vaughn, contacted the plaintiff by telephone and had the plaintiff perform eleven hours of "loader" work on the same property which is involved in the present suit. For the loader work the defendant paid the plaintiff $128.37, using a "P and B Corporation" check, which the plaintiff endorsed and cashed. The plaintiff met Mr. Ragsdale, the defendant, on the first job which was performed at Mr. Ragsdale's request. On February 14, 1957, the defendant again contacted the plaintiff by telephone and requested that he perform the work and furnish the material for which the present suit is brought, which was on the same premises as the first
2. Special ground 4 complains of the admission of the plaintiff's testimony showing the manner in which his books were kept and how information concerning the charges therein referred to was obtained. The objection to the evidence was that no foundation had been laid for the plaintiff to testify from his books. The objection is obviously without merit since the testimony related entirely to the method of the plaintiff in keeping his books.
An additional objection to the evidence was that the plaintiff did not testify that the books were kept in the regular course of his business. The objection is without merit because the substance of the plaintiff's testimony was that the books were kept in the regular course of his business and he made the entries therein daily following the work performed covered therein by the entry.
3. Special ground 5 assigns error on the admission in evidence
4. Special ground 6 complains that evidence was excluded tending to show that, long after the account was contracted, the defendant resigned as secretary-treasurer of the corporation in whose name he professed on the trial to have acted in contracting the account. The defendant admitted when sworn as a witness that, when ordering the material and work comprising the account on which the present suit is brought, he did not disclose to the plaintiff that he was the agent of the corporation or disclose to the plaintiff any fact that would inform him that anyone except the defendant would be liable for the account. Hence the evidence offered was objectionable as being in the nature of hearsay and irrelevant to the issues of the case on trial.
5. Special ground 7 complains that the court should have charged the jury without request several propositions of law. Some of the principles of law requested did not comport with the pleadings and proof in the case and, had the judge given the desired instructions, it obviously would have been error. See in this connection Western Union Tel. Co. v. Owens, 23 Ga.App. 169 (5) (98 S. E. 116); Thompson v. O'Connor, 115 Ga. 120 (5) (41 S. E. 242).
6. Special ground 8 assigns error on the charge as a whole on the ground that the court went more into detail in stating the plaintiff's contentions than in stating the defendant's contentions. This ground is without merit. Phinizy v. Bush, 135 Ga. 678 (3) (70 S. E. 243); Millen &c. Railroad v. Allen, 130 Ga. 656 (61 S. E. 541); May Bros., Inc. v. Srochi, 23 Ga.App. 33 (3) (97 S. E. 277).
7. In special ground 9 it is alleged, "the movant, Ragsdale, avers and contends that the trial judge erred in his failure to charge the jury substantially that they must find that from the evidence in the case that the plaintiff performed the work according to his testimony, and the other evidence in the case, on the property that the defendant requested him to do the work on, and not on some other property."
It was not error to deny the amended motion for new trial for any reason assigned.
Judgment affirmed. Felton, C. J., and Nichols, J., concur.
