Messrs Callan and Gallaway wrote enclosing a copy of a letter received from Messrs Stout and Mondy in connection with the street lines in Musselburgh, which read as follows: "Referring to our various interviews with your Mr Gallaway, wc are instructed by the company to intimate that they decline to vary in any way the terms of settlement mentioned in our letter to you of 4th ult. Unless your clients accept these terms without further delay an action will be instituted in the Supreme Court. The offer of settlement is, of course, without prejudice." Messrs Callan and Callaway's communication went on to say that as they understood that the Council declines to entertain the offer referred to they requested them to furnish a copy of all correspondence and minuteß in connection with the matters in dispute.
