Letter, dated 12/05/1837, from G. Barnett (partner of Mr Lynch), 6 Adelphi Chambers, stating that G. Barnett has reviewed the papers of Mr Lynch, including signed accounts of Messrs Braikenridges and Honnyill, which show interest paid at 6% per annum from 1805 to 1835 inclusive, amounting to £10,800, 'a sum more than ample to have satisfied the prior claims in their hands, in as much as their present claim is for only £12,000 and upwards'.
