I certify that I have measured and bounded five hundred acres of land to Donna Isabella Higginbottom, upon the St. Mary's river, at a place named Higginbottom's Bluff, in part of seven hundred acres that were granted to her deceased husband, Burras Higginbottom, upon the said river, on the 24th of September, 1803, with the name of Reading Blunt; but this resulted to be claimed by another person, in consequence of which he took possession of these five hundred acres, which he has cultivated ever since, and the remaining two hundred, at a place named Sondag's Bluff; which five hundred acres are represented in the following plat (see plate I., fig. 1), and its original, which I preserve in the books of surveys in my charge.
