Representations, commands, threats and other utterances are a species of acts and may have legal consequences. An utterance may, for example, constitute fraud, negligence, slander or intimidation. The person who speaks is responsible and it may be that another person, in whose behalf the utterance was made, also is responsible. This discussion has to do with the question of what must be shown to establish the ability' of one person to speak in behalf of another, and thus to make the other liable for the legal consequences.
