           Said Guardian would further show to said Court that the above Fifty dollars is all the money he has received for said ward, and all he suspects to receive for said ward. That the object of his taking out letters of Guardianship was to effect sale and give title to said wards interest in certain real estate in Rush County, Indiana, and when that was accomplished there was no further necessity continuing said trust, that said ward is the child of the undersigned, and has no other property, that said child resides with the undersigned, and he is keeping him and taking charge of him. He makes out the within bill for services and goods purchased, for the purpose of disposing of the balance of said $50, so that said trust need not be continued, he therefore respectfully asks said Court to receive this his report, and he now tenders his resignation and asks that the same be received.
