January 6th, 1937.
Messrs. Joshua E. Peel & Son,
Re: Mr. Joseph Steenson & 27
Gates Ave., Toronto.
I acknowledge your letter of December
17th in which you advise that Mr. and Mrs. Steenson have
called at your office and duly executed Assignment to
my client Mr. Kesteven, of the Second Mortgage held by
Mr. and Mrs. Steenson on 27 Gates Avenue, in the City
of Toronto, Ontario. In your letter you also advise
that Mr. Steenson has signed a letter to my client in
the form which I supplied and which letter authorized
my client to send a Draft to you for such amount as
could be purchased with $25.00.
As an evidence of good faith in this
matter, I deposited an Accepted Cheque with Mr. Thompson,
the Toronto friend of Mr. Steenson. It will be necessary
for me to get back such cheque from Mr. Thompson
before sending the said Draft to you. Unfortunately, Mr.
Thompson is slightly ill and will not be able to get
back to his office for a few days and so I will not be
able to obtain the cheque from him until that time.
I presume that by now you have appeared
before the Notary Public and that the Assignments are
fully completed. These documents are obviously much different
than those you use in Ireland and I think I should
have the opportunity of examining them and seeing that the
Affidavits of Execution have been completed in a manner
that will be accepted by the Registrar of Deeds in this city.
I wish therefor [therefore?], you would kindly send on the
Assignment of Mortgage in duplicate, also the letter of
authority to Mr. Kesteven, to me just as soon as possible. I
asked Mr. Steenson if he would also let me have his duplicate
copy of the Second Mortgage and any other title papers he
might possess. I presume that he has given these to you and I
wish you would kindly enclose them with the other papers.
In the meantime, I will secure back my cheque from Mr.
Thompson and upon receiving the papers from you and finding
same to be in proper order, I will immediately purchase
Draft payable to your order and forward it to you by registered
mail. If for any reason you do not care to settle
the matter in this way, you could send the papers to Mr.
Thompson with instructions that I might examine same but
should not be allowed to take the papers away from his
office until I handed to him a Draft payable to your order.
Mr. Thompson's address is - J. Thompson, Esq., Ontario
Hospital, 999 Queen St. West, Toronto, Ontario.
However, the amount involved is not large
and in view of the very long delay in this matter, I think
you will probably accommodate me by sending the papers directly
to my office.
Now that the matter is fully under your
own control, I hope you will accommodate me by sending on
the papers without delay. I am by no means out of the
woods when I receive the papers as I still have to deal with
the owners of the equity and I may yet have to foreclose them.
Yours very truly,
W. H. Male
W. H. Male.
