Number seven. In the City of Panama, Sovereign State

of Panama, United States of Colombia, on the 14th January, 1882,

before me, Luis ]iata Duran, Notary Public "umber Two of the

Capital District and of the Department of Panama, there appeared

Irs. Sahara Abraham de Correoso, resident, of age, married, whom

I know, and stated: That, with the consent of her husband,
IMr.Buenaventura Correoso, whom I also know, she had transferred,

under a true sale and in perpetual ownership, to the Universal

Interoceanic Canal Company, represented in this State by its

chief agent and general attorney, Mr.Armando Reclus, a lot of

land, forming part of the Gatun property, belonging to the vendor.

(Here follows a statement of certain legal requisites pro-

vided in conveyances, and complied with by the parties to this


The memor.ndum of agreement referred to, copied verbatim,

is as follows: "Mr.Notary Number Two.- Please draw up, for file

among your protocols of public instruments of the current year,

one which shall record that I, Sahara Abraham de Correoso, with

the consent of my lawful husband, Mr.Buenaventura Correoso, and

as owner of the property known by the name of "Gatun", have sold

to the Universal Interoceanic Canal Company, represented in

this State by its chief agent and general attorney, :7r.Armando

Reclus, a lot of three hundred hectares in area. I have made

the sale for the sum of $8,000, which sum -I declare that I

have received to my entire satisfaction. The said property of

Gatun is bounded as follows: To the north and east, by the

river Chagres; to the south, by the lMiraflores property; and to

the west, by the Quebrada Prieta (Black GuloW.). Among the obli-

gations of the vendee company shall be that of compensating the


G A T U I -2- 8007

farmers or squatters belo',gingf to whatever class, established

there at the present time and within the boundaries of the lot

which I am selling, and whom it Eay be nooesBary to deprive of

the simple or naked pon.-esion, or mere holding of the land,

which they are occupying with dwelling houses and plantations.

In the lot which I am selling to the said Universal Interoceanio Coripany there is not comprised the site (area) of the

present village of Gatun; and for the purposes of greater clear-

ness/, there are set forth hereurder the exact boundaries of

the aforementioned lot: On the south, by a line which, starting

fror.m the routh of the Ceiba ravine, runs towards the north,

until it mreets a small port (dwr) of the river Chagres, opposite

the Juana Gabalito Chiquito ravine. From there, the boundary

line follows the left bank of the Chagres river to a fixed point,

marked with the number one, neur the town of -atun. This point

is determined in the following manner: Forring an angle of one

hundred degrees (cunt:sina1l division) with the prolongation

of the line R 8 one hundred and seventeenS: R S one hundred and

eighteen of the (SAo) (polygon (i__c)) of the railroad

for a distance of one hundred w-d seventeen meters and fifty

centimeters; and from R S one hundred i.rd eiZ;'.teen, continue

until the point D is raachsd, covering a ditarncc of one hundred

and fifty meters. 'ro', this last point, and making &n .angle of

one hundred and thirty four degrees, five, proceed a distance of

two hundred and twenty-eight meters towards the south to meet

point two; hence, that is to say, from the extremity of line

one-two, and forming another angle of one hundred and eighty

degrees, seventy-three, toward the south-west, proceed one hun-

dred and twenty seven meters to ruach point three; from this

point, forming an angle of one hundred and fifty nine degrees,

G A T U N .3. 5007

ten, on the line two-three, proceed a distance of one hundred

and thirty meters, reaching point four, on the left bank of the

river Chagres. lence, the boundary line runs, without departure,

along the left bank of the Chagres to the mouth of Ceiba ravine,

the point of outset. The lot thus described comprises, as has

been stated, an area of three hundred hectares. Any error that

may result from the scienrtific rectification made in the de-iaroa-

tions and mbaaureuoints described aha 1 not be to the prejudice

either of me as vendor, or of the company as vendee; and in the

event of a difference of quantity, there shall be a reciprocal

rigit to proper compensation, which hall place in one of two

ways, either in land or in money, taking as a basis the price of

the sale to determine that of each hectare. I, as vendor, reserve

an easerient of right of :.ray for the rest of my property, in the

event of its being severed (split) by the Canal, or by any

deviation of rivers or streaks; and in the same wy, I grant a

like easement to the vendee company and to its successors to

have free access to the lot purchased, traversing the rest of

the property not comprised in this sale. In the price of the

sale there is included any compensation that may be due for the

permission which I hereby grant to the vendee company to con-

struct and exploit one or more ways of oomnunication, of whatever

kind, over the rest of the Gatun property that belongs to me,

which may be traversed in all directions by the said raeans of

oorr.unication. And the vendee coimiany binds itself in the same

way to grant to me and to my wife free passage on the railways

that it may construct or which it may acquire in any way.

Accompanying this minute are two plans which you, Mr.Notary,

will please sign with your rubric (paraph) leaving one attached

to the mer.iorandum of agreement, and attaching the other to the

first copy that you issue of the deed, in which you will insert

Number sixteen. In the City of Colon, Sovereign State

of Panama, United Statesa-of Colombia, on the 23rd February, 1882,

before ms, Juan Barsallo, chief notary public of the Department

of Colon, in the present exercise of my official duties, and the

witnesses Messrs Alfredo Benjamin Leinadier and Gregorio Villa,

residents, of age, of good repute, and under no legal disquali-

fication, there appeared Messrs Tomas Rodney Cowan and Jose E.

Dias: the first, a resident of this city; and the second, a

resident of Panama; both of age, whom I know, and stated:

That, by virtue of the authority vested in both by their respect-

ive principals, Mr.Juan Stevenson, on the one part, and the

Universal Interoceanic Canal Company, on the other, r presented

by its chief agent, Mr.Armando Reclus, they proffered and exhib-

ited a memorandum of agreement, with a view to drawing up, in

accordance with its general terms, a proper deed of purchase

and sale, which memorandum the undersigned Notary has before

him being as follows, copied verbatim: Mr.Notary Publio of

the Department.- Please draw up, for file among your protocols

of public instruments of the current year, one setting forth

that I, Tomas R.Cowan, in my capacity of attorney for my brother,

Juan Stevenson, have sold to the Universal Interooeanio Canal

Company, one-half of the rights of possession which the said

Juan Stevenson has to a lot of land situated over against the

property of Monkey Hill, in the vicinity of this city. The one-

half of the land to which this sale has reference (but see below)

lies within the following boundS: Setting out from a little

bridge on the railroad, over a marsh or swamp, and following

this last to its termination, in the direction of east to mst;

I K E R A -2 014

thence, an imaginary straight line, in the s&;uie direction, per-

pendioular to that of the Ifokrerentioned railroad, to the arm

of the sea lying to the west. The line in question starts,

as above stated, from the torination of the awaep, ,.-d pasNes

between the two hills lying to the west, verging aorie%'hat towards

the northern hill, so trat it cuts its ..southern slope. The
portion of land the po-nesi;ion of whioh I am selling to te

aforementioned company, lies to the north of all that lot of

land which is clearly marked off in the ;.laJwhioh the Govern-
ment of Colombi& has directed to be held as the official isoue,
made by the ooEiis:i oncrs Tor.:,a garrison and Bias Arosemena

queBsatda, the verdor resa--rvng to himself that part Which lies

to the south. The portion which I am to-day selling to the

Universal Interooe:rio Cranal Company is, therefore, bounded as
follows: to the east, by the line of the railvway; to the north,

by narshy lands of the lot numbered one of the aforementioned
plan and. wlJudioatud to the Railway Company; to tie vest, by the

qrm of the sea of whioh ,e-tion has bain made; and to the south,

by the other portion of the same property which is not included

in this sale. The price at which I have sold the rir-hts of
possession to the portion of land above described, is $1,00,

which Bum I decluje that I have received to my entire scitisfac-

tion, including in the bane the value of any claim or inder.nifi-

cation to which I may be entitled by reason of the use which the
vendut Comptny haa ru-de of a portion of the aforemrntioned

property. The Comnany binds itself to pay me a further sum of

1,500oo aS soon as I can furnish to its lawful representative a

good title of full ownership (ih fee sim-ple) to the aforenen-

tioned property; titles which I declare in good faith that my

3- 65

I; x It R B A N 5014

aforesaid brother and principal, Mr.Juan SteveneOn, has, and
which I am unable to place my hands on at the moment. The

ComparV binds itself, in like manner, to give me notice in
thio event thtt it should find it neoesuary to devote to some
special use the Iand ul.on which stands a tomb reared to the
memory of one of my anoetors, so that I may remove it to
so:ie other Spot and its reri ains, the w?:ltWBBe& of tran.s-

portation being at the oharge of the auid Compafny. Thie oon-

traet is accepted, in the nrwie of the oft-aforoarentioned
