Plan of the lots on the Avenue
The donations of land to the Trustees were bounded by lines running N and S — East and West. The streets of the village were laid off at angles of 28° and 62° with the meridian. When therefore lots are laid off at and near the boundary it becomes necessary to accommodate the lines to the course of the streets. E. Mitchell proposes to take from the Trustees the tract (No 1 A) and give them tract (No 1 B) in which exchange he will have a little the best of the bargain, but not much (No 1 A) being rocky and broken. Also to give (No 2 a.) and take (No 2 b) which is perfectly fair.
