The object, My dear Sir of the present Communication is, to re-

quest you to make particular enquiry, whether there be at present any

actual Settlers on those lands, & who those Settlers are, by name & Sur-

name as well as to learn more minutely the quality of the different trEcts,
EP,* 5
as is now becoming a matter of urgency /to have them disposed of in Some

way or other-

The plates & descriptions are so distinct that there dan be no difficulty

in ascertaining the locality, by any one acquainted with the Country, &

you will I presume Know many Such from your long residence in that neigh-

bourhood- Some delicacy however may be required in the investigation, as

I do not want to alarm the good folks who may have thought no harm of reap-

ing a few Crops from their neighbours grounds-

I use no ceremony my dear Sir in making this application, being well

convinced that you will oblige me by your attention to it, if in your power




4

& consistent with your other avocations, which I would by no means wish
you to infringe upon-


Yours very Sincerely
Ja. Innerarity
