Auburn in an envelope with the
Bond and Mortgage. Deduct the expenses you thus incur
and give us credit for the excess of funds sent you, if any,
stating the amount with a statement of the whole affair.

William H Seward
We shall draw on you today for seventeen hundred dollars
which we have agreed to loan for you for John Furbush
Birth: 1784

of Mentz in this County on one hundred acres of land worth
$3400. We are perfecting the title papers and the money will
remain in the Bank until the whole search is perfected but
the bond and 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 •
will draw interest from the day
you pay the money in the Bank of Auburn New Burgh.
One other loan slipped through hands before
my return home, and this $1700 is all of the $5000, which we
can find investment for. The draft on you will be at
the New Burgh Bank as soon as this will reach you.
Very Truly, William H Seward,
The Honorable,
Samuel S Seward
