C. E. ABBOTT,
ATTORNEY AND COUNSELOR AT LAW.
UNION BLOCK, 513 N. MAIN STREET,
FREMONT, NEB. [Nebraska?]
May 16, 1900
Messrs. Joshua E. Peel & Son,
Your letter received with reference to the
Adam Baxter power of attorney and contents duly
I have also gone over with Mr. Baxter the
entire matter. In reply will say that Mr. Baxter
is perfectly willing to transfer this stock, as he
knows that it does not belong to him, and he is
willing to accommodate his mother in all things.
As the matter stands at present he would be
placed in an embarrassing position if he should
be called on at some time in the future to show
by what authority he transferred this stock to
strangers. I can not see what objection there
could be to having the form recite that the
authority of the brokers is limited to
transferring the stock to Mrs. Baxter, instead of
having it in the general way that it is at present.
Nor can I see why he can not "on the form
provided by the bank" constitute Mrs. Eliza
Baxter his attorney to make the transfer. If it
can not be reached in either one of these ways Mrs.
Baxter can forward to me a receipt for the stock and
authority to transfer as you wish and I think Mr.
Baxter would then make the transfer although I did
not suggest that to him.
You can readily see that Mr. Baxter can not
afford to transfer this stock which he is holding
in trust for his mother to the brokers, and
without any express authority from her to do so.
Please understand that we are not trying to
embarrass you in the least in getting this adjusted,
but as a business proposition Mr. Baxter wants to
know that when he transfers the stock the heirs can
not come onto him at some future day and question
C. E. Abbott
