NIND & COTTERRILL re William WAIT, 1820

National Archives, Kew, CO48/53, 128

Throgmorton St

Jany 20 1820

Messrs NIND & COTTERRILL have the honour of informing Mr. GOULBURN that the partnership disputes between Mr. LAFOSSE and Mr. WAIT have been settled by Mr. WAIT's assigning to trustees the whole of his property except for his household furniture linen & cloathes & his interest in the grant of land at the Cape of Good Hope, and the Injunction out of Court of Chancery has therefore been abandoned.

At the same time Messrs NIND & COTTERILL submit to Mr. GOULBURN their client's claim under the assignment to the money deposited by Mr. WAIT or at least so much of it as was deposited for persons who have not actually proceeded to the Cape. Messrs. N & C have the honour of returning Mr. WAIT's letter.
