By a further indenture dated 2 Sept. 1657 Sir John Pettus and Samuel Sandys released to John Chapman all agreements for redemption during the term of the mortgage. Part of the principal and all the interest of the original loan had since been paid to John Chapman by the mortgagors. Sir John Pettus ratifies the assignment.
