the person so filing a notice, or, if two or more persons have filed such notices, the one who holds the first lien, may, at any time before two o'clock of the day, not a Sunday or a public holiday, nest succeeding the last day of the year, redeem for his own benefit, in like manner as the lessee, his executor, administrator, or assignee might have so redeemed. Where two or more judgment creditors or mortgagees have filed such notices, the holder of the second lien may so redeem, at any time before two o'clock of the day, not a Sunday or a public holiday, next succeeding that in which the holder of the first lien might have redeemed; and the holder of the third and each subsequent lien, may redeem, in like manner, at any time before two o'clock of the day, not a Sunday or a public holiday, next succeeding that in which his predecessor might have redeemed. But a second or subsequent redemption is not valid, unless the person redeeming pays or tenders to each of his predecessors who has redeemed, the sum paid by him to redeem, and also the sum due upon his judgment or mortgage ; or deposits those sums with the judge or justice, for the benefit of his predecessor or predecessors.
