Bertram Yorke to Canon Tonks: Matter is between Fr Delaney and Canon Tonks; Finance has nothing to do with me

Disposition of deed, etc. is a matter for Fr Delaney and Canon Tonks to sort out. Fiance is nothing to do with Mr Yorke. Fr Delaney bought the 4 plots and the presbytery in his own name. They were conveyed to the Bishop and others; however, the plots were no longer needed once a new site was found. The same process has happened for this site - acquired by Fr Delaney, subsequently to be conveyed to the Bishop and others. Fr Delaney has deposited the deeds with the bank and paid a deposit because he was concerned not to lose the site. Sort it out between you and send on the deeds for the plots to settle with Mr Reade - it being a small matter but it is hindering things.

Bishop to Fr Delaney: Aldeburgh & Leiston chapels

Excellent start: rent-free house and gardens; sites for Aldeburgh & Leiston chapels secured. Need to check on conveyance restrictions and re-convey the buildings to Diocesan Trustees (suggested names: Bishop, Fr Delaney, Fr Hugh Parker, Fr Austin O'Sullivan), take your solicitor's advice. Model Trust Deed available. Leiston chapel seems cheap - but need to consider extension in the future, hence make the walls higher to avoid tunnel appearance. For maintenance, use Mission receipts, but in the intervening months Bishop would provide funds through the Poor Mission Fund (Canon Ashmole will send an application form).

Canon Tonks to Bertram Yorke: Need clarification on the status of the deeds / conveyancing

How do things stand with reference to deeds in Aldeburgh? Has one to sell four plots to Mr W C Reade. The other for the church site is held in a bank without being signed by any of the trustees (Bishop, Peacock, Parker, Delaney). This should have been done before the transaction went to the Bank. How are we to know what has been purchased if we do not see the documents? We have no title to the property?

Tonks, Joseph Rev (1863-1943)

Canon Tonks to Fr Delaney: Need to transfer deeds to the Bishop

Mr Yorke has revealed that the deed for the Church is in Fr Delaney's name and held by the bank. Bishop cannot be asked to sign the deed of sale for the four plots without receiving this deed. Is Fr Delaney going to transfer the deeds as requested? Hope you are making a rapid progress towards complete recovery.

Fr Davidson to Bishop: Buying land; future of Leiston; space for another priest

Wants to buy a plot of land, but need the Diocese to advance the money. Looking to the future of Leiston - presently unsatisfactory being out of the way on an unadopted road. No news about another room being built on the side of the presbytery - could put an elderly priest there to help in the exhausting, and unsatisfactory, work running Aldebergh-Leiston parish.
Manuscript Annotation: "Plot of land. 60'x250'(frontage 60') opposite Rly. Station belong to Warlock. Price £100 but [?] probably a reasonable price as they have no more use for it. Thought project of room to be at Ald. was to find funds[?]. Better find out what they mean of 'a reasonable price'. Oct 20/28."

Fr Davidson to Bishop: Land South of Presbytery ; Request Exposition

Mr Knowles will buy the land to the South of the Presbytery for £200 - cheque & reply enclosed. He will build a house and leave a 4 foot passage way . No commission due - direct approach. Request leave for the Exposition of Blessed Sacrament on Christ the King.
Manuscript annotation: "Ans: Good. Send [?] receipt to Fr Davidson. Put matters in to the hands of Jackaman [?] ; this must be legally done, with necessary conditions and actions; verbal promises are no good in these matters. Yes. You can have Exposition. Oct 28/26."

Fr Delaney to Bishop: Maintenance; Poor Mission application; House furnishing and decoration costs

Cannot form an estimate of income from the visitors during the season, therefore will ask Canon Ashmole for an application form for the Poor Mission fund soon. Costs of furnishing, repairing and decorating the presbytery were high; the nuns only advanced half his last quarter salary; getting the workmen our the house (fourteen of them) was an issue. No problem with putting the chapel on the garden in fact he might be able to get an additional strip of land as a gift. After his return from Paris, Fr Delaney hopes to do great things with building fund and maintenance fund. Would like to get building soon since it is difficult to accommodate the existing congregation without including visitors. Numbers are increasing 3 recantations in both Aldeburgh and Leiston; four ready for full baptism; three babies for baptism.

Fr Delaney to Bishop: Mr Young's visit; land by the presbytery

Mr Young, very entertaining and interested in the project, he has taken measurements and will draw up plans and scheme. Says that £1,000 will not get a lot but he will do his best for Fr Delaney. Mr Dermott may make over a plot of land adjacent to the presbytery - the site would then be 100 ft frontage on Fawcett Road with a depth of 64ft. Reminded the Bishop about petrol and states that he has sold his old motorcycle and bought a new one for £55 , this year's model.

Jackaman to Canon Tonks: Aldeburgh Land - Conveyance to be signed; request details of any charges

Canon Peacock informs them that the Bishop is in the area - he can be asked to sign the Conveyance to Mr Smith. The deed will be forwarded to Fr Parker. Any charges on the land? The vacant land is assumed not to have rates or taxes and Mr Smith will provide the balance of the purchase money. Supporting statement received from Mr Reade for his commission: "I beg to say that I was asked to find a customer for the land and having done so am entitled to usual commission for the same. As nothing had been said about commission I thought it best to mention the matter before deducting the amount but I did not suppose for one moment but that your client would be willing to pay it." Jackaman say that if this is the case then the commission seems fair and reasonable.
