††††† 2/7/1894†††† 49 Copy of letter containing instructions re the Carl Gottfried Muller case to Mr. Letzner

††††††††††††††††††††††† To Rechts-Anwalt Letzner, Chemnitz

†††††††††††††††††††††††

††††††††††††††††††††††† Dear Sir,

††††††††††††††††††††††† In answer to your letter June 19th enclosed a true statement of Mr. O. G. Muller's indebtedness

††††††††††††††††††††††† to the Exec. of the late Charles Russ £4532.8.5 as per bills handed over to you & there can be

††††††††††††††††††††††† no question of its truthfulness and admittance by the Court, we hope.We notice your receipt

††††††††††††††††††††††† mentions only 16 bills whereas you recd. 17, one more of £100 - per 31 of August which

††††††††††††††††††††††† surely you will find with the others.

††††††††††††††††††††††† So the gross amount of the bills is £4602.8.5 of which Mr. Muller paid £70 Rests due £4532.8.5

†††††††††††††††††††††††

††††††††††††††††††††††† Respecting the question of interests it is the law in Gt. Britain that in case of accepted bills

††††††††††††††††††††††† there is no rebate for interests we presume that this is the same in Germany however this

††††††††††††††††††††††† question you will know best to decide.

††††††††††††††††††††††† Enclosed please find power of attorney with strict instruction not to accept less than 33 1/3%

††††††††††††††††††††††† in cash or very short payments.Carl Hermann Muller is of course liable for the amount & you

††††††††††††††††††††††† will have to proceed against him unless at the meeting July 5 you settle with 33 1/3% cash as

††††††††††††††††††††††† said above.Awaiting your news promptly we are yours truly

††††††††††††††††††††††† signed 3 fold

†† 13/11/1894†††† 61 Mr. Muhlberg went to Chemnitz Agreed with Mr. Hosel, Trustee of the Bankruptcy Estate of

††††††††††††††††††††††† Otto George Muller that our claim be received, deducting interest, for M 80,479.50 pf.

††††††††††††††††††††††† =£3945.1.6 subject to O. G. Muller paying 20% Cash himself or guaranteed by his father and

††††††††††††††††††††††† subject to the trustees of the late C. Russ dropping their claim on Carl Muller.

††††††††††††††††††††††† Letter contd. from p.66 [sic] Recd. from Franz Rahtkens

††††††††††††††††††††††† The extremely low rates of freight still prevalent, & the continued heavy back calls of the

††††††††††††††††††††††† Mutual Insurance Clubs are, of course, mainly to blame, & whilst these may be more easily

††††††††††††††††††††††† borne by larger more modern boats it seems, with the low freights now ruling & the S. S. John

††††††††††††††††††††††† Redhead's general impracticability & heavy consumption, so impossible to do any further good

††††††††††††††††††††††† that we would suggest to our co-owners to sell the boat as speedily as possible.We are the

††††††††††††††††††††††† more persuaded to make this proposal as No. 3 Survey, always heavy & costly, is now due, &

††††††††††††††††††††††† as there are no funds in hand to betray it.Will you be kind enough to favour us with your

††††††††††††††††††††††† views as early as possible.

††††††††††††††††††††††† yet been favoured with your reply to our circular of the 6th. inst. & would now beg to submit

††††††††††††††††††††††† the proposal already assented to by a large majority, of selling the boat to a Norwegian

††††††††††††††††††††††† Company of limited liability to which we shall be glad to receive your consent.Scrip would be

††††††††††††††††††††††† issued for your share, & of course afford complete security. - Several of our neighbours have

††††††††††††††††††††††† already done so with considerable advantage.(signed F. Rahtkens)
