Excerpt from The Columbia Jurist, Vol. 1: A Weekly Law Journal; February 3rd, 1885, to June 10th, 1885
I am unable to see, says Judge Brown, the distinction between a con tract which a married woman enters into with her husband, under which he man ages her separate estate or business as her agent, and a contract of partnership, which is nothing more than a mutual agency by each in reference to the common business of both.
This decision would 'seem to maintain more definitely than any case that we at present call to mind, the opinion of the court in Better 12. Rathman, 61 N. Y. 512, In which the Court says: If the wife has the capacity to contract with the husband with reference to her separate estate, there is no limit upon the power in the statute.
