Will be sold by the subscribers, to the highest bidder, on the first Tuesday in August next at the court-house in the town of Waynesborough, (if not previously disposed of), 450 acres LAND, (more or less), of an excellent quality in the county of Burke on the Walnut Branch, within four miles of the Court-house.  80 or 90 acres are cleared and under good fence.  Condition 1000 dollars paid down and the balance in one and two years, to be secured by a mortgage on the premises, or approved personal security. 

H.W. Sullivan
Nimrod Lewis

July 6


H.W. Sullivan appears to be as much of a ghost as Nimrod himself at this period, but this does give me something new to work on.  Jointly possessing the land, so brothers in law perhaps, disposing of an inheritance?
