POWERS OF ATTORNEY.

An attorney is one who is specially appointed to do anything for another. His authority may be limited or extensive, and general or particular, as the persons appointing him shall see fit. Any man may grant his own right or power to perform a thing to another.

An attorney, however, cannot, without permission from his principal, delegate his authority to a substitute. An alien, a minor, or a married woman, may act as an attorney.

The authority to act as an attorney should be in due form and ander seal. The attorney must act according to his iustructions; aud whatever be undertaken, should be undertaken in the name of the party from whom he has received his authority.
