Author Name Richard Parker (primary) Location: Carlisle Barracks
Recipient Name Samuel Hodgdon (primary) Location: Philadelphia
Summary The deed is not currently recorded in this county so it would be proper to have it forwarded for that purpose. Both Colonel Postletwait and Colonel Alexander believe that a survey is needed to ascertain the public claim on the channel of the spring so Hodgdon should make every effort to forward the draft and the survey as soon as possible. Wilson's heirs would sell the land they claim on the spring for thirty pounds (currency) per acre.
