Summary of contents:

Henry COOK of Swindon in the County of Wiltshire - Confectioner
The Oxford Building and Investment Company Limited
Walter GRAY of Oxford - Auctioneer


The document begins by reciting that in 1873 John Dover mortgaged property in Swindon, Wiltshire, to the Oxford Building Company for 900 to be repaid within 14 years. The Oxford Building Company has now petitioned for winding-up and Walter Gray has been appointed Liquidator to supervise the process.

Accordingly, Walter Gray is now selling the property to Henry Cook for 700. It is in Eascott, Swindon, fronting onto the North side of North Street and bounded by Western Street on the East.
