about 1000 acres of farming lands
from 2 to 4 miles from Edgefield
C. H. On main road from Edge
field to Augusta by Ropers X roads
and Sweetwater church. There isa
20-rauIe farm of open lands on this
place that will rent for 40 bales if
all was rented out. 15 tenant!
houses; 10 barns, two of them will
accommodate 20 head of stock. One
commodious dwelling of ll rooms,
2 halls, 9 fireplaces, 100 feet of
piazzas on three sides; would cost
?5000 to build this sort of house
now. Telephone in house, can talk
to Columbia, Augusta and various
other places. New well, six feet in
diameter, walled with brick and ce
ment at back porch; 18 never fail
ing springs of pure free stone water.
Cedar creek runs through place for
over two miles. Have bottom lands
on creek worth $100 per acre, level
and easy to cultivate. Have often
made two fine crops a year on them
of oats and corn and peas. Last
year, made extra fine oats, then
planted in cern in June and made
extra fine corn, then sowed peas in
corn when it was layed by, and
made fine peas and hay; so I made
three crops last year. My uplands
respond to good preparation, cul
ture and fertilizers. If used with
three-year rotation, will improve
and grew remunerative crops. Have
lands that have been worked 100
years. When I bought them would
take three acres to make 1 bale of
cotton. Last year with 300 pounds
acid, meal and kainit mixed I made
1 bale of cotton per acre. The la
mented Col. Geo. I). Tillman and
Dr. Jas. A. DeVore used to own
the majority of these lands and both
of them told me these were best nat
ural cutton grit they ever saw in
tbeir travels, would corre nearer
making anything that prows out of
the ground than most places. I
raised last year with ll mules 125
bales of cotton, ??uu bushels corn,
oats, wheat, peas, potatoes, melons,
fruits, vegetables of most kinds,
vetch, clover, sugar cane, pop corn,
peanuts, turnips, pea vine and am
ber cane hay, strawberries, as par a
agus, line lot of hogs and cattle.
Have raised successfully sheep,
goats, mules ami horses. AV hen
mules were cheap, I sold a 2-year
old halter broke colt to a man in
another county fur * 1.45. A good
hoiSw-man that has been in every
mule raising .-?late in the union told
me he never saw a better 2-year-old
anywhere. Four years ago my
health failed. Feel that 1 want
rest, to do nothing for a year at
least, take things easy, travel some,
is my motive fur selling out. There
is nu rest for a man on a large plan
tation. Have tried to be a gentle
man farmer, wear ciean shirt, collar
and cravat, rid i a fancy saddle
horse. Have found the old maxim
true1 That he by the plow must
thrive must either hold or drive.
Could always run things better by
taking hold. Just show them ex
actly hovv I wanted things done.
Commenced to buy these lands
when I was 19 years old on credit
with interest. Just as I would al
most get out of one thing I would
jump in another, as I bought this in
5 tracts. Paid for all but one small
tract when cotton was selling from
4 1-4 to 8 cents at factory, that is
where sold of it then. Hailt every
house on lands except 2 small unes,
every panel of fence and managed
always to meet my contracts. Am
