Is the Chamber of London oblidged to pay the above bond either in law or Equity

Mr Bunbury's Opinion

After such a length of time the Bond will be presumd to be satisfyed, unlesse there have been
demands made since, or the Obligees can prove paymt, of Interest lately-W: Bunbury Inner
Temple Febr 16th- 1729

Mr Lutwych's Opinion

I am of opinion that If there has been no demand made nor any Interest paid in twenty yeares time
the Bond will be presumed to be satisfyed unless there be some Evidence to take off that prsumpcon
And as this length of time is above four times twenty yeares that there has been an Acquescence
I do not see any probability of SuccessTho: Lutwyche< no role >
