Summary of contents:
Charles Cook of 1 Radnor Terrace, Bird in Bush Road, Peckham, Surrey. Builder.
John Poole Roberts of Roslyn Cottage, Cowley Road, Brixton, Surrey. Gentleman.

The document recites an indenture of June 1865 in which Charles Cook obtains a 95 year lease on number 6 Portland Place, Peckham, Surrey at a rent of 3/4/0d (three pounds four shillings no pence) per annum.

He is now selling the residue of the lease to John Roberts for 200. We are told that there was already a dwelling house on the plot when Charles Cook first acquired it but he is now selling it 'with all erections and improvements made and set up in addition thereto since the making of the said indenture of lease'.
