Vendue-Office - Wood, or Timber Lands, in Essequebo, viz: - 1st, a Piece of
Land situated on the West bank of Essequebo river, next the place of Mr.
Sarzeer, about 600 roods in front and 900 in depth; agreeable to a chart
thereof which will be produced at the Vendue Office on the day of sale; with

been disposed of in different Lots- leaving only 350 roods in front with all
the back Timber Land - containing in the whole about 1500 acres, measured and
impalled as the upper limits. This piece of Land is well worth the attention
of Carpenters' [sic] and Wood-cutters, as it contains more valuable Timber,
such as Greenheart, Wallaba, and every other species of hardwood, than any
other place in both rivers, at such a small distance from the cultivated parts of
the colony; besides having the convenience of the creek Werewerrekerery (on
which is situated the Saw-Mill of Mr. A. Meertens) which runs through the Land,
and is navigable for large Punts, being 14 feet deep.

Manweaboura, 100 roode [sic] facade and 700 in depth.
