William Worts and his wife are mortgaging property in Horning to Joseph Lee for 2000. The property is exactly that sold by Joseph Lee to William Worts the previous day (see our Document No 0704023) and, in summary, consists of:

The mortgage takes the form of a 1000 year lease to Joseph Lee at the rent of a peppercorn until such time as either the loan is repaid or the borrower defaults on the interest payments.
