Summary:
Had purposely laid the foundations of his house at the corner of Stone and Broad Streets several feet back, on Storm's promise to purchase the equivalent at the rear of the lot and convey it to him. This was never done. Mr. Cruger has never consulted with him on any such arrangement as was believed by Storm. Is pleased to learn that the word "encroachment" was inadvertently left in the surveyor's report and asks that it be omitted. Is committing the whole business to his son, as these matters can best be handled in person. Considering the former agreement, he feels repugnance in having to buy that which was to have been purchased and conveyed to him.
