Summary:
Until speaking with Peter Augustus Jay last year, he was not aware that an agreement allowing John Jay to purchase a strip of land at the rear of his Stone Street property to compensate for street improvement had not been fulfilled. Apologizes for the word "encroachment" which was improperly introduced into the survey. The plans entail taking in about four feet of John Jay's ground on which the foundation has been laid; all are extremely sorry for this circumstance. Encloses a letter from Mr. Bayard, who is authorized to sell for Mr. Boudinot the land at the rear of the lots. Should four feet be taken from his Broad Street lots, enough would remain for two houses, and the present foundations should be rebuilt at any rate.
