Question 286.— What is the legal difference, if any, affecting either the bank itself or its signing officers, between the following forms of signing drafts, receipts, orders, etc.: " The Bank of Canada, A. B., Manager or Director," and "For the Bank of Canada, A.B., Manager or Director?"

Answer.—We think there is no difference whatever, either affecting the bank or the signing officer, in the effect of the above modes of signature. Either would be held to indicate that A. B. was signing on behalf of the bank.
