A. L. S. Endorsed. 3 pp. 8o
Description
He thinks the lottery prizes [of lands in Maine] ought to be purchased, but he is astonished at the prices offered; purchasers forget that locations cannot be ascertained without a survey, which the State has refused to enter into; the favorable arrangement of Mme. Leval's claims ought to stimulate her to form a settlement on the lands; asks to whom the remaining part of No. 7 belongs, and whether he could procure the remainder of Mount Desert, and how Trenton is to be divided so as to make out a deed to Mme. Leval and M. La Roche; he expects many French settlers next summer; hopes the legislature will pass a law favorable to the admission of foreigners.
