      Know all Men by these Presents,

      That we Stephen Branch as Principal and Amana Manton and Truman Beckwith as sureties, all of Providence, in the County of Providence, and State of Rhode-Island and Providence Plantations, are holden and stand firmly bound and obliged unto William Churchman, John Cardill, Richmond Bullock, Walter R. Danforth and Lachanial Allen, who constitute the present Court of Probate in the town of Providence, in the county of Providence, in the full sum of Two Thousand dollars, to be paid unto the said Court of Probate, in their said capacity, or to their Successors in said Office, or assigns; to the true payment whereof we bind ourselves jointly and severally, firmly by these presents. Sealed with our seals, this tenth day of September in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and twenty one.

      The condition of this obligation is such, that whereas the above bound Stephen Branch has this day been appointed by the said Court of Probate Guardian of the person and Estate of John W Oldham who has this day been adjudged by said County to be incapable of managing his Estate.

      Now therefore, if the said Stephen Branch do and shall well and faithfully take care as well of the person as the estate of the said John W Oldham and make or cause to be made a true and perfect Inventory of the said estate, and the same do exhibit unto the said Court of Probate, at such time as the said Court shall appoint; and shall well and faithfully perform and discharge the trust and office of Guardian as aforesaid, and that in and by all things according to law; and shall render a just and true account of his said Guardianship to the said Court of Probate, when and so often as he shall be by the said Court thereunto lawfully required; and shall pay and deliver, or return, what and so much of the aforesaid estate as shall be found upon his accounts (being first allowed by the said Court of Probate) unto the said John W. Oldham at such time as the said Guardianship shall cease, as the law in such cases directs;

      Then this Obligation to be void, otherwise to be and remain in full force and virtue.
