The Estate of Ellen Hearn, 1829
From the LDS microfilm Estate Files # 2056192

Saint Johns 12th December 1829

Sir

Mr. Joseph O'Donnell called on me yesterday for the purpose of becoming Security to the Heires of the Late Mrs. Ellen Hearn pursuant to her receiving Letters of Administration to manage her Mothers affairs and finding that she had Intends claiming a certain sum of money due to her Mother for service rendered to her late Uncle Mr. ? O'Donnell during his Illness. I have declined coming forward for I made up my mind from the beginning not to have anything whatsoever to do in this Fammily [sic] Matter, and more particularly as I am the only person to whom money is due from her Mother it may be said I was concerned about? money. I know of no property she would have to manniage [sic] except this sum of £17.17.1 should she succeed in recovery of it and as respects myself,    I have no objection to whatever way it is manniaged [sic] by her Your Lordships.

I remain Sir
Your obedient Servant
Tim'y Hogan

Note if a Family Transaction like the present one was not involved in the matter, I would with pleasure be security for her to any amount I would be taken for
