April 24th 1869

Before G.  F. SEWARD, Esq., Consul General.

In re H. A. HOLCOMB.

The Assignee stated that no dividend could as yet be paid on this estate, the only assets the bankrupt had being disputed, he however expected to have about $700 out of the mortgage on Au Chalet.  There were only three claims proved against the estate: - Fogg & Co. for taels 965.72; Allen for Taels 926.50, and Michel & Co. for Taels 157.

Mr. Maitland, who had some dispute with Fogg & Co. respecting the result of some transaction which he had with Mr. Holcomb, was informed that in regular course he should pay into the hands of the assignee what money he had belonging to the estate, and the assignee to be requested to hold the same pending the determination of any question of account between Fogg & Co. and Mr. Maitland.
