5 SQUARE DU ROULE
Paris

26 Juillet 1895.

Monsieur,

J'ai l'honneur de vous informer de la part de Me. Beurdeley[3] que, dans votre procès avec Sir Eden[4], nos adversaires nous ont signifié à la date du Mercredi [p. 2] 24 courant, leur désistement sur l'appel de l'ordonnance de référé relative à la nomination d'un séquestre. Cela signifie que, non seulement il [sic] retirent leur demande devant la Cour, sur ce point spécial, mais encore qu'ils prennent à leur charge tous les frais relatifs à cet incident.

[p. 3] Je vous prie de vouloir bien agréer, Monsieur, l'expression de ma parfaite considération.

Gaston Druchet

Dr. en droit
Avt. à la Cour.

'11 bis rue Guillaume Tell'

Dear Sir,

I have the honour to inform you on behalf of Mr Beurdeley that, in your case with Sir Eden, our adversaries indicated on Wednesday, the 24th instant, their withdrawal from the appeal against the order to repay relative to the nomination of a sequestration. This means that, not only are they withdrawing their request before the Court, on this particular point, but they are also accepting all the costs relating to this incident.

Assuring you of my best attention, I am,
Yours faithfully,

Gaston Druchet

Doctor of law
Barrister to the Court
