There are many types of agreements or contracts with UC Davis, including grants, industrial research agreements, licensing agreements, service agreements, agreements, declarations of intent, orders and letters of intent. The university concludes master`s degrees with institutions that simultaneously support many projects at UC Davis. The master contract refers to the terms and conditions of sale applicable to all projects sponsored under this project. While in 1865 he wanted to take over Davis Bend (“Hurricane” and “Brierfield” plantations), Joseph Davis had submitted documents to the Freedmans Bureau in which he insisted that he had deliberately never given the title to Jefferson Davis. After first receiving a pardon and then reclaiming the land, he sold the two plantations to former slave Ben Montgomery and his sons and repaid a mortgage of $300,000 at 6% interest, with payments due every January 1, starting in 1867.  While Joseph Davis realized that he could not manage successfully without his enslaved 375 people, he expected the Montgomerys to be better able to manage the labour situation, 51,000 cotton balls in 1865 and earning $160,000 in profits.  When the Mississippi River was flooded in the spring of 1867, it also changed course, destroying many hectares and creating “Davis Island.” After Joseph Davis` death two years later, in 1869, he left the property to his two orphaned grandchildren, as well as his brother`s children, and named Jefferson Davis one of the three executors (with Dr. J. H.
D. Bowmar and nephew Joseph Smith). After Montgomery`s men entertained the three executors in May 1870 and suffered losses in the panic of 1873, Jefferson Davis decided that black men could never honour the land purchase agreement and filed a lawsuit against the other administrators on June 15, 1874.  Jefferson Davis argued that his late brother had a verbal agreement with Ben Montgomery, allowing Jefferson Davis to withdraw the contract, and that an unassigned price of $70,000 in the value of the sale of Brierfield land (Hamer`s orphaned grandchildren said this represented a decline in land values). The local court of the chancellery (which had a Republican judge at the time, and two of Hamer`s three lawyers were former Confederates) dismissed Davis` complaint in January 1876, citing Estoppel. Because Davis had acted as an executor for four years, whereas this assertion was based on alleged acts in the 1840s.  In April 1878 (months after Ben Montgomery`s death), the Mississippi Supreme Court struck down the Warren County Chancery Court and ruled that Jefferson Davis correctly claimed Brierfield`s lands by indecent property, having torn them off and exploited them between the 1840s and the beginning of the Civil War (more than the ten years required by law). At that time, two of the Republicans on this appeals court had been replaced by Democrats, The two former Confederate officers, To effectively enter Brierfield`s possession, Davis had to convince the Warren County Chancery Court to close the mortgage that occurred on June 1, 1880, and all appeals were dismissed until December 1, 1881, so that Jefferson Davis (for the first time in his life) could obtain the title of legal title.
