The plaintiff Mrs. Hoddeson was acquainted with the spacious furniture store conducted by the defendant, Koos Bros., a corporation, at No. 1859 St. George Avenue in the City of Rahway. On August 22, 1956, Hoddeson journeyed from her home to the defendant’s store to attain her objective. Upon entering, she was greeted by a tall man with dark hair frosted at the temples. Upon confirming Hoddeson’s selections the man withdrew from his pocket a small pad upon which he recorded her order and calculated the total purchase price to be $168.50. Hoddeson handed to him the amount in cash. He informed her that reproductions would upon notice be delivered to her in September. Hoddeson awaited but eventually learned from the defendant that its records failed to disclose any such sale to her. Hoddeson was unable positively to recognize among the defendant’s regularly employed salesman the individual with whom she had arranged for the purchase.
