wants a set and I think it best to let him
have them, I can pay John Dill
Birth: 1757-10-28 Death: 1846-09-21Certainty: Probable
, in a thousand ways if Cook
will take them I will let him have them and he may
pay you when you come home
I have written to Martin
Birth: 1808-11-25 Death: 1883-09-19Certainty: Probable
about the Vil-
lage law — as I understand if opposition comes it will
come from that quarter —

bot a few of Cowen & Wen-
del the other day in Onondaga @ $ 3 1/2 — a Lawyer died

I do not know as I shall get any

profession this I can do only by books — and the
last decisions are the most necessary to be understood

before her marriage became administrative assis-
tant. She took possession of Johns Real ^& personal^ Estate & received
the rents and profits paid Johns debts &c her purchase
under the Bond & Mortgage given by John to the
heirs of Charles Hughes is fraudulent — She had enough
of the property in her hands to have paid the Bond &
Mortgage and she cannot buy in as executor any
property under a sale upon Mortgage or judgment for
the purchases of bonds paid Creditors — her purchase
was nothing more than the payment of the Mort-
gage — she had enough in her hands to have paid
the mortgage
The charging of property by a debtor to a creditor as security for a debt, on the condition that it shall be returned on the payment of the debt within a certain period • Convey property to a creditor as security on a loan •
and she should have done so, the
only difficulty is how to proceed — I do think that
as the matter now stands I would be as the ^ equitable^ owner
of that note entitled to maintain a suit in chan-
cery — were Stephen W Hughes living I consider main-
tain a suit in equity to recover the note — I have
the equitable interest in the note — and as there is no
one save ^S W^ Hughes heirs who has the legal interest will
not the Court of Chancery protect my equitable
right — I find cases almost exactly in point I am ^as he^
maintaining the suit
I intended to have sent you some of
the New Years Convention addresses but it is
Sunday night and I cannot get into I Ken-

office –– Send me as many of your speeches
as you can spare they go well W
