WITNESSES.

In witnessing any legal instrument, remember the words of scripture," that
in the mouth of two or tbree witnesses every word may be established."

THE

BUSINESS MAN’S ASSISTANT.

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS OF DEEDS, ETC. Deeds, especially Deeds to convey lands, must be executed, attested by the requisite number of witnesses, acknowledged, (or proved), and recorded in accordance with the laws of the several States where the property is situated. Without acknowledgment or recording, except in the States of Maryland, Virginia and North Carolina, they may avail against the grantors and their heirs, (except in the case of a married woman,) but not against attaching creditors, or subsequent purchasers.

In New Hampshire, Vermont, Ohio and Michigan, two subscri. bing witnesses are indispensable. In the other States it is customary for one or more persons to subscribe as witnesses, and it is indispensable if the Deed is not acknowledged.

There should be a seal of wax or wafer for each signature of a party to a Deed. In some States, as in Pennsylvania, Virginia, Alabama and Georgia, a scroll of ink with a pen will answer for a seal.

In Rhode Island and Vermont, Deeds are recorded by the town clerks of the several towns where the lands lie. In the other States they are recorded by recording officers, acting under various names, for the county where the lands lie.

In New Hampshire and Vermont a Deed may be put on record without the acknowledgment, but will be available only against the claims of creditors and subsequent purchasers for sixty days.
