TO be SOLD on the Premises, to the highest Bidder, the 16th of November,

THREE HUNDRED ACRES of LAND, with the notable RIVER MILL known by the Name of Staunton's, which is on the North River, about twenty Miles from Fredericksburg and Falmouth, and convenient to the Roads that lead to either of those Towns. She is suitable for a Merchant Mill, was rebuilt two Years ago, with two Pair of Stones on a Floor, and a Bolting Cloth, all going by Water. Any Gentleman that inclines to purchase a Merchant Mill cannot suit himself better, as Nature has wrought so much in the Conveniency of the Place for a Mill that she certainly will be a Mill to the End of Time; her Dam is just now rebuilt, and was built about twenty Years ago. The Land is well timbered, but has no Improvements excepting about the Mill, and those but trifling to mention. One Half of the Purchase Money to be paid down on the Day of Sale, the other Half that Day Twelvemonth. The Sale will begin at one o'Clock, and is not sold that Day will be sold any Time after at private Sale. A Plan of the Land will be shown on the Day of Sale.
