John Rutherford wrote from Tranquility, New Jersey, to Susan Kean in Elizabethtown, New Jersey. Rutherford offered Susan advice and assistance on a bond. He endorsed the bond with his name and then assigned it to Susan so she could then act in her own right and not as an executive in the business and receive the money. Rutherford then resealed the paper that contained other bonds and offered to keep them until Susan’s future determination. He also informed her that there was no need to present or offer an explanation to Robert Barnwell.
