It seems clear, therefore, neither White nor Oldham being present, that the secretary must have made up his record, in regard to Oldham's proffer, from some verbal or written communication from White. The expression "this day." in the record, then, must be construed to refer to the time when the matter was brought before the Company, and not as fixing the time when Oldham actually made the proposal to White. As we have seen, Oldham was, probably, not in London at the time, and, if not, there is no evidence that he was in England. On the question, when, where, or how he propounded to White the examination of...
