Viewing Event Record: Common Pleas, Woodliffe vs Langley: Langley replies


Richard Langley's response to Woodliffe's suit provides details about Francis Langley's bonds concerning the financing of the Boar's Head. Francis Langley and Woodliffe negotiated three bonds over the purchase of the Boar's Head, and here Richard discusses the terms of one such bond, which includes the provision that if the Langleys pay Woodliffe £100 by 2 November 1600, the £200 bond will be void. Langley denies that the bond in question is owing, because he paid Woodliffe the required £100 on 2 November.
