SUBJECT
William and Eliza Edwards are mortgaging leasehold property at 39 Culmore Road, Peckham to the St James Building Society for 400.

We are told that an 81 year lease on this property had been granted by Thomas Single in 1865 (one of the partners to that lease was an Augusta Edwards - possibly related?).

The separate piece of paper is a copy of a letter to the landlord, Thomas Single, informing him of the mortgage.
