There was as much a Contract between H & Co and the Freedmen as if Norwood had not been known in it and the only difference between the Contract in the present case and the one which exists between Commission Merchant and planter in all cases, is that instead of holding the money for the Freedmen it was to be sent or paid to Norwood for them.

Very Respectfully
