Denman, who had just "bought of [John A.] Halderman the interest of the latter in the ferry, Ewing wrote to Reyburn, of Philadelphia, to encourage "an amicable settlement" to avoid taking their disagreement to court. The nature of their dispute was not entirely clear, but Ewing insisted that if not settled it could undermine the legitimacy of the ferry company's charter in the eyes of the soon to be constituted State government.
