uable farm in the vleinity of Richmond.
In addition to its vaiue as a stock rarm
and an attractive country residence, it is
exceptionally valuable for the following
purposes:
First. Its frontage of about one-half a
mile on James River, which at this point
is ubcut two feet deeper rhan at Rich?
mond, makes it very valuable for manu?
facturing and shipping purposes. There
is probaoly no better site than this for a
large shipyard and dry-dock.
Second. There ls an excellent granite
quarry on the property near tne river:
also, large deposit of brick-clay; splendid
shipping facilltles, both by water ano; rail?
road, the deposit of brick-clay being Im?

way, which passes through the farm; and
Third, The electric line that has been
recently strrveyed from Manchester to
Petersburg along the Petersburg Turn?
pike passes immediately in front of the
rear part of this farm, thus making it
valuable for acreage lots.
