) SS:


            The undersigned would respectfully show the court that she is now 17 years of age and the wife of  Lawrence Black, who is of full age, and resides with her husband and child at 206 Eastern Avenue, Indianapolis, Indiana.
            That she is the same person as Ruby Arnold for whom  Thomas H. Campbell  acted as guardian in this court and who as such guardian made a final report and was discharged some time prior to March 27th, 1914; that said guardian paid over to the Clerk of this court for the benefit of the undersigned the funds belonging to her in said trust, as appears by Order Book 63, page 55, in said court.
            That on or about March 27, 1914, this court ordered said funds to be placed on deposit with the Mutual Loan & Savings Company of Shelbyville, Indiana, for the benefit of the undersigned.
            That there is no longer a necessity for a guardian, either for the person or estate, of the undersigned and she therefore prays the court that this trust be finally closed as to her by the payment to her, with the consent of her said husband, Lawrence Black, of all funds belonging to her in this trust.
            That notice should be served upon the Mutual Loan & Savings Company, of Shelbyville, Indiana, of the filing of this petition in order that they may be bound by any order that the court may make therein.
            Wherefore, she prays the court that the funds belonging to her, now in the custody of the court, be ordered paid to her if the assent of her said husband, Lawrence Black, be given thereto.
