Letter to Rev. Monck regarding Advice given to Mrs Nickson & land to Overton, 9th November 1883

Handwritten Letter to Rev. Monck regarding Advice given to Mrs Nickson & land at Overton, 9th November 1883

No 9th 1883 {November 9th 1883}
Dear Mr Monck,

I am rather amused at Mrs Nickson's having taken offence at the little Saturday advice you gave her, I think it has had its effect.

With reference to the small piece of land at Overton, I observe that you say Mrs Nickson had spoken to me about it and I mentioned the subject to Mr Randles yesterday, they are willing to sell if you {illegible}, I have also has a letter from Mr Pele and have promised to look into the title and write to him again; of course the estate is settled , but under the new settles land act a tenant for life can sell with the consent of the trustees but the proceeds has to be capitalised and invested upon the trusts of the land from which it was derived - I take it that you consent if the others do, and the land can be sold.

Believe me
Yours faithfully
Humphreys

Dear Mr Monck,

I went over to Liverpool yesterday to try and bargain with the Town Clerk for the land upon the basis of Mr Dennis' valuation, but he considered it much too high and offered {illegible} than half. I pointed out out that it was building land but he could not see it in that light.

The chairman and the {illegible}are to see Mr Dennis to try to arrive at a price. I agree with you there is nothing like asking {illegible} at first but I am afraid we shall not get near the valuation. I will be advised by Mr Dennis and get all we can.

Yours Truly,

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"
