HAVING sold a part of my estate near
Marlmsburg. Berkeley County, Va.
I wish to dispose of the residue, consisting
of the Mill tract of about
3 40 ACRES,

lands equal in quality to any in the state.
Upon the Mdl tract there are upwards of
one hundred acres of first rate bottom
land, and about 'he tame quantity of
cleared upland, the balance in limber.—
The Mill house is a substantialstone build
ing, one hundred feet by forty, in which
three pair of Burrs and one of Country
Slones are worked by the Tuscarora
creek, one of the best andmo&t permanent
mill streams in the country.
The dwelling house, also of stone, is a
large convenient well finished building,'
divided into fourteen rooms, besides a
passage of 13 feet width through its centre.
There are barns, stables and other out
houses in abundance, all good and conve*
nient.
The Oak Ridge tract is 94 miles distant
from the Mill tract, about one half of it
covered with timber ol the finest quality,
the balsnee cleared, well fenced, and in
a high stale of cultivation. The improve
