FRED PABST, President
M.C. McNab, Esq.,
We regret exceedingly that the COndition of the
record title of the real-estate referred to in our recent correspondence, is such that our general counsel here cannot approve the title. We are, however, satisfied from your letter that adverse possession and understood metes and bounds at Youngstown are in effect sufficient if evidence thereof can be preserved, to warrant us in completing the desired purchase, We therefore request that you cause to be made as soon as possible such affidavits of the surveyor and of citizens who are acquainted with the facts relating to adverse possession, as will enable us to have evidence in our files to preserve, to protect our title. We think it advisable to have these affidavits not only sworn to but acknowledged
in due form of law, so that if necessity requires we may have them recorded.
