Answers were put in by the Company to both of the informations.

In February 1834 the relator disclaimed the suits, and asserted that his name had been used without his authority. In June 1834 the case was brought before the AttorneyGeneral, who declined to interfere. The solicitors of the informant, Messrs. Harvey and Yates, in August 1834, entered into an arrangement with the solicitor for the Company to dismiss both informations on receiving their costs out of pocket amounting to 1101. The payment was maile, with the approbation of a committee of the Company, from the Charity property, being probably a much smaller sum than would have been required if the suits had proceeded.

Mr. S. Sharpe, in August 1833, wrote an opinion upon a case submitted to him as to that part of Lady Owen’s trust estate held by the Quakers :

“ I am of opinion, looking to all the circumstances, that the Company are bound to insist upon the forfeiture of the lease of 6th June 1786, which has been incurred by the houses which have been built under the license of the 26th March 1827, having been left in an unfinished state and allowed to fall into a state of dilapidation ; and I am of opinion that the Company are bound to insist upon the forfeiture to the full extent, leaving it to the Court of Chancery afterwards to authorise any compensation being made to the lessees under the Quakers, or those claiming under them, for the logs they may sustain by reason of such forfeiture."

Messrs. Martineau and Malton's bills of costs relative to the negotiation with the Society of Friends, amounting to 4151. 2s. 2d., were laid before the court of the Company in May 1835; also a statement of the sums paid to Messrs. Harvey and Yates, and for surveyor's charges, &c., by which it appeared that an expenditure of more than 6001. had been incurred by the Company as trustees of Lady Owen's Charities in these proceedings, and an offer having been made on the part of the Society of 2501., and an indemnity to the Company in 2,0001. Resolved, that Mr. Gurney be informed 301. will be accepted upon condition that the houses be repaired forth with and insured in conformity with the covenants, and that the expense of the bond to be prepared by Martineau and Malton be paid by the Society ; and on the 12th February 1836 the payment of the 3001. to the Company and of Messrs. Martineau and Malton's bill for the bond of indemnity was reported.
