Re: Mr. Joseph Steenson &
house no. 27 Gates Avenue,
Toronto, Ontario

Dear Mr. Peel:

I wrote you on May 14th (sic), in regard to
this matter and as I did not hear from you, I wrote
you again on July 13th. It is now August 21st and so
I presume your long silence means that you are unwilling
to act for me in this matter. I feel that
the delay has been most unfortunate as Mr. Steenson
wrote to Mr. Thompson here, stating that he was
willing to execute the Assignment to my client. I
hope the delay in attending to the matter at your
end has not given Mr. Steenson an opportunity to
change his mind. You are, of course, a stranger
to me but Mr. Thompson spoke of you so highly that
I felt that I could count on your co-operation. I asked
Mr. Thompson to recommend some Solicitor doing
business in your city and he told me I could not
engage a better lawyer than yourself. It is, of
course, possible that you have been ill or on a
very extended trip but in such case, I would imagine
that your clerk would have dropped me a line of explanation.
What has to be done is very simple. It
is simply a case of having the Assignment of Mortgage
duly executed by Mr. Steenson and then forwarding
same either to myself or to Mr. Thompson. If
the document is sent to me directly, I would forward
the monies agreed upon direct to you, or, if the
document should be sent to Mr. Thompson, I would pay
such monies over to him when he hands me the Assignment
in duplicate. If you are unwilling to act, I
hope you will do me the courtesy of returning my

I do not know what is the practice
in Ireland in such matters, but if it is not improper
for me to ask the favour, I will indeed
appreciate a reply from you by return mail.

Yours truly,
W. H. Male

W. H. Male.
