CORRESPONDENCE: Col. and Mrs Yale of 11 Pulteney Street, Bath and Plas yn Yale near Corwen and Mr Richard Barker of Chester concerning:
1. initial delays by Mr Bulkeley Hughes in paying the money he owed to the McGregor trust but in February he paid £4000 into Court. The mortgage on the Gop estate was then assigned to him by the co-trustees. Col. Yale objected to paying the costs involved but Mr Barker advises him to pay since in the eye of the law all trustees were liable and in the circumstances they have got out of a very tricky situation very well. However Mr Bulkeley Hughes has paid up more than Mr Baker ever dared hope for.
2. Mortgage repayments and payments on a life annuity. Col. Yale was forced to pay a higher rate of interest to his mortgage.
