For Sale. [heading]
A Piece of Land called La Reserve, situated directly opposite the Sand Hill, containing 250 Acres; 16 of which are impoldered, trenched, and railed in with Wallaba staves and posts and hardwood laths. The pasturage is very good.
The Buildings thereon consist of a large Logie 14 feet high, 72 do. long and 30 wide in the body, with a gallery of 18 feet wide on each side; a part of each of which is enclosed and floored with Colony lumber, and makes a very convenient and comfortable Dwelling.
A side Building 95 feet long by 15 wide, divided into seven parts, for Kitchen, Store-room, Stock-house, Wash house, &c.
A Carpenters Logie 60 feet long, 26 feet wide.
A Sawing Logie 42 feet long, 26 feet wide, and 18 feet high, containing a very excellent framed Saw-Pit.
One other Logie 18 feet by 24 to deposit plank or lumber as it comes from the saw-pit.
A Necessary, a Koker, and a Garden railed in with Wallaba slaves, containing some fruit trees.
All the Buildings are in good repair and lately covered with troolies, except the Kitchen and Necessary, which are shingled with Wallaba shingles. There is on the Land Crabwood, Manicoles and Troolies, and it would be an acquisition to a Carpenter, Boat builder, or Wood cutter.
The place is at present occupied by Mr. Wm. Reach, by application to whom it can be seen at any time, and should it prove more agreeable can conveniently be divided into two parts as the Buildings are well placed for that purpose3. The Land is extremely good for Coffee, Plantains or other Provisions, and the terms will be made very easy to any approved purchaser. Apply to F. J. Huesteeg at Werk & Rust, or to J. Feuillet on Plantation Hayma.
Should the above Land not be sold in four or five weeks from this date it will be offered at Public Sale.
