[LM022035], Letter from Charles Patterson Bruch to Ezra Torrance Gilliland, August 7th, 1888

Editor's Notes

"I have seen Mr. Geo. DeForest Lord, of Lord, Day & Lord and have given him to understand that you consider that the two [unclear] requesting payment of interest after the payment had been made was evidence of a rather careless method of doing business. Mr. Lord said that Mr. Cunard was his personal client and that as the cashier of the firm received the [unclear] he failed to be notified that the amount had been paid; he admitted, however, carelessness on the part of the clerks. I said to him that your desire to pay off the mortgage in accordance with your contract was not do to any feeling of pique or on account of any treatment you had received from Mr. Lord's hands but that you would desire to pay the loan in any case and that I did not understand that you asked for Mr. Cunard's address with any intention of going over Mr. Lord's head, but merely that you might be fully informed in the matter. ### Mr. Lord stated that he holds the bond and mortgage and that Mr. Cunard is in England and therefore by making payments directly to Mr. Cunard you would be defeating your own interest, as you would be unable to receive the proper credits therefore, which should be endorsed upon the bond and mortgage. ### It will be impossible to obtain satisfaction piece until the amount has been fully paid." Yours truly, Chas. Bruch
