Letter from H. Humphreys Solicitor, Wrexham to Mrs Nickson regarding the Loan, 30th October 1882

Octr 30 1882 {October 30th 1882}

Dear Mrs Nickson,

I wrote you on Saturday that the money was paid into the Bank on that day.

Mr Monck declines to sign the notice of the borrowing. Would you kindly {illegible} and ask him to do so. It has nothing to do with the estate only in the event of your not repaying the money by the instalments the trustees would have to do so out of your income. Please explain and sent me the notice which I have sent him. {illegible} I have given an undertaking to let Misses Nickson's have it at once. Mr Randles has signed, {illegible}

Faithfully yours,
{illegible} Humphreys

P.S
Please sent me your cheque for £4.8.2 to pay Crown Rent H.H.

Mrs Nickson"

Letter from Humphreys Solicitor, Wrexham to Rev Monck about Mrs Nickson's Loan, 30th October 1882

Dear Mr Monck

The notice is only for this purpose, Mrs Nickson has agreed to repay the £500 by instalments of £100 a year, if she does not do so, the trustees would have {illegible} out of her {illegible}. In the {illegible} her death before it is repaid her life is insured and this money would go to repay the loan, however if you decline to sign I cannot help it, I have thought it better to explain the meaning of the notice; she could not do without the money.

yours truly,

Letter from Humphreys Solicitors, Wrexham to Rev. Monck regarding Nickson's Loan, 27th October 1882

Handwritten Letter from Humphreys Solicitors, Wrexham to Rev. Monck regarding Mrs Nickson's Loan, 27th October 1882

Octr 27 1882 {October 27th 1882}

Dear Mr Monck

The borrowing of the £500 was nothing to do with the estate, Mrs Nickson has no power to borrow on it. The sum is thereby borrowed on her life interest, in fact, on the rents out of which the loan will have to be repaid by installments of £100 a year.

Mr Randles was here yesterday and upon the transaction being explained to him He alone signed as there can be no liability on your part.  Mrs Nickson informed me that she had explained all to you. In the event of her death I have insured her life in the Rock Office in a sufficient sum to repay the loan.

Perhaps you will kindly reconsider the matter, there really is no liability.

Yours truly,
{Illegible} Humphreys

Letter from Monck regarding Mrs Nickson's Loan, 26th October 1882

Handwritten Letter from Monck regarding Mrs Nickson's Loan, 26th October 1882

"Oct 26/82  {October 26th 1882}
Dear Mr Humphreys

I distinctly said that I as Trustee will have nothing to do with Mrs Nickson's borrowing on the estate & so refuse to sign any papers in connection with it.

As I imagined it was a private affair upon which I was never consulted as Trustee I cannot see that I have any reason for signing anything.

I remain,
yours truly,

G. G. Monck
