It will be seen from the above account that the wards Estate is due this guardian $37.86 which occurred for the reason that he had loaned out the greater portion of the funds of said ward and he advanced the same out of his own means. The item of $45.00 paid RACHEL WATTS as shown by the above account was paid to her as the natural guardian of said ward. The said RACHEL WATTS being the mother of said ward and the said sum of $45.00 was paid for the support and maintenance of said ward. The Item of six dollars is supported




Page 286




by a voucher filed with the papers of GEORGE WATTS a minor, as appears from above account, the sum of $20.00 is charged against this Estate for the services of this guardian in negotiating the different loans for said ward. This is the fair & reasonable charge for the services rendered. In obedience to an order of this Court on the 12th day of April 1882 he loaned out of the funds belonging to his ward to SOL FITZHUGH with A. J. LEWIS as security the sum of $350.00 and took their note there for due 12th of April 1883 this note is secured by trust deed on 104 acres of land situated in Collin County Texas. The note bears 10% per annum interest. The loan is well secured. There is still in possession of this guardian the note for $375.00 on MRS. V. H. ALLEN with a credit of $45.00 is reported in last account and also the note of LAWRENCE BERRY for $50.00 mentioned and described in last report. Also a half interest in the note on C. E. & E. OBENCHAIN for $150.00 previously reported. And here the reporter wishes to correct the account as above to wit: He received from C. E. & E. OBENCHAIN $18.23 as interest on their note to this ward which is not charged against this Guardian which sum added to $412.00 the amt. on hand at last report would make a total of $430.43 and would have said ward owing this guardian $19.63 and not $37.86 as above stated. There has been no other charges in the condition of said Estate since last report. Wherefore he asks that the notice the law requires be given of the filing of this account. That the same be approved and for general and special relief.
