Summary Simmons wrote to Elias B. Dayton regarding some original papers which are vital to the admission of his accounts. Dayton's reply informed Simmons that they are in Smith's possession and that Dayton asked Smith to transfer them. However, writes Simmons, Smith conceived that these papers were his vouchers for the orders which he drew, and as a result Smith did not feel he had the authorization to transfer the papers without Simmons' order. Simmons therefore directly requests that Smith send the papers to him.
