I ceased to carry on business along with my brother in the year 1868. I took nothing out of the business with me. The books of the firm lay for some time before Mr W. Watson (deceased), writer in Haddington, and they were afterwards, on behalf of the partnership, laid before Mr Lindsay, accountant in Edinburgh. Mr Lindsay found that there was a sum of £305 due me. That sum was never paid me by my brother. I afterwards made him a further advance of £300 in various sums. My agents, Messrs Paterson & Cameron, S.S.C., Edinburgh, agreed to get me a disposition in security over some property in Tranent, belonging to my brother and his wife for the whole sum due to me by my brother. I understood I was to draw the rents of the property, and after deducting the interest due on my debt, to hand over the balance to my brother. The disposition in security was prepared and extended but never signed. Mr CAESAR moved an adjournment of the examination to allow him to make further inquiry into the affairs of the bankrupt.
