Dear Sir,
Referring to our Mr.Bischoffs' Letter to you of
the [5?] ulto: in reference to Mr Motz's claim on the Estate of
the late Lord Caledon. We beg to inform you that we have received
from Mr. Motz several letters from Lord Caledon to himself some
of which you have already seen but all of which we take the
liberty to enclose herewith and from a careful perusal of these
letters we think it must necessarily be informed that unless his
Lordships Bankers Book discloses the remittance of œ500
adverted to in his letters of the 27 April 1844 and Feby 2 1846
since that date his dept to Mr Motz, thus admitted remained
uncancelled. For it is abundantly clear that Motz made advances
to "Flora" at his Lordships request had an open account current
with him,and that Lord Caledon by remarking both in 1844 & 1846
that he would remit œ500 estimated his Debt at about the
sum he now claims as due to him.We also beg to enclose Motz's
letter to ourselves and we think when these have been perused
you will as Executor have no difficulty in arriving at the fact
that an unsettled open account existed between Lord Caledon &
Motz and we are satisfied you will appreciate the circumstances
which have left the Claim in its present embarrassed condition
and deal with it on a fair and equitable basis,and Mr Motz will
doubtless support it by Affidavids
We are, Dear Sir
Yours faithfully
Bischoff, Coxe & Bumpas
W.J.Alexander Esq.
