By Ernest G Lorenzen


2. RELATIONSHIP OF THE DIFFERENT CONTRACTS. a. Theory of the Independence of the Different Contracts. Whichever rule is adopted as the governing law the question will be whether the obligation of the maker\u27s, acceptor\u27s, drawer\u27s and indorser\u27s contracts entered into in different jurisdictions shall be subjected to different laws, or whether all of the parties must be presumed to have contracted with reference to a single law.
