To be SOLD at Fredericksburg, on Thursday the 16th of December,

A TRACT of LAND containing about 2000 Acres, which lies near the Lewes Bridge, Spotsylvania, not far from the aforesaid Town, formerly the Property of Mr. Benjamin Grymes, and mortgaged by him to the late Colonel Peter Randolph, whose Executors have empowered the Subscriber to sell it. The Land is laid off in three Lots, and will be sold separate, or altogether, as most convenient. The Terms will be made known at the Day of Sale. Any Person inclined to purchase privately may do it by applying to the Subscriber, who will show the Land to any Person, and therefore thinks a Description is unnecessary.

The Subscriber has also for SALE on the same Day, privately or publickly, altogether or in Lots, about 900 Acres of LAND whereon Concord Forge stood. The Stream is equal to any in Virginia, and the Place is well situated for a Merchant Mill.
