The guardians must recognise each other as owners

"Commodities cannot themselves go to market and perform exchanges in their own right. We must, therefore, have recourse to their guardians, who are the possessors of commodities...In order that these objects may enter into relation with each other as commodities, their guardians must place themselves in relation to each other as persons whose will resides in these objects, and must behave in such a way that each does not appropriate the commodity of the other, and alienate his own, except through an act to which both parties consent. The guardians must therefore recognise each other as owners of private property."

Guess Who?
