Re: Joseph Steenson & House no.
27 Gates Avenue, Toronto, Ontario
Dear Mr. Peel:
I am sorry that I misunderstood your
letter to me of December 17, 1936. Some months ago, I had a
visit in my office by my friend, Mr. C. L. Dyer, who is head
of the Philco Radio & Television Corporation of Great Britain.
In course of conversation, I found he had a representative in
Northern Ireland and I asked him if such representative could
call at your office and ascertain what I should do in order
to get back the documents completed, which I mailed to you on
May 4, 1936. Mr. Dyer has just sent me his representative's
report and it appears that Mr. Steenson insists that the
consideration for the documents must be forwarded to you
before you may release same. I did not understand that the
delay was due to the fact that I had not forwarded the money
and I regret indeed that I did not understand from your letter
of December 17, 1936, that the forwarding of the money was a
condition precedent. I quite appreciate that there is very
little compensation for you in the matter, a remark which also
applies in respect to my own services on behalf of my client,
but of course, that is not your fault.
I have purchased a Bank Money Order,
paying for same, $30.28 and I enclose such Money Order which
is for œ6/6/0. I have had the Money Order made payable to you.
Please let me have the documents just as soon as you can and I
wish you would check them carefully and see that they have been
executed fully in the presence of a witness and that the witness
has also signed the Affidavit of Execution on the back of each
copy and of course, the witness will have to be sworn before
a Notary Public. Possibly, these details have already been
completed. I hope also, that you will enclose any other papers
you may have relative to the matter.
I appreciate that there is very little
compensation in this matter for you. As soon as I have
received the documents and have been able to register same
at the Registry Office here, I will be able to get some
further monies from Mr. Kesteven and will then immediately
mail to you a further Money Order for $5.00, as some further
small compensation to you for your trouble.
Yours very truly,
W. H. Male
W. H. Male.
