I date my arrival at Autgusta, Gen., in 1800i,
and continued there until 1821. I commenced
my' career as a common boatman ott the Sa

to wealth and fame, having been engaged in

My wharf at Augusta, Geo., I sold in 1819,
for $50,000, cash, and I am warranted in say

cent. clear of all expenses ever since. My
bridge was built in 1S13, and 1814. and cost
$73,000, and according tojthe best proof I have,
it has paid for itself, principle, interest, and
expenses every six years since that time: My

June, 1821, by the Court of Equity at $7,000.

its real estate is now valued at $35,000. The
