Dr. Sir

The above is all the information I can furnish you from the Records in my Office relative to 6. Hannibal. The Awards of that Township are in Onondago County. If Awarded & no dissent entered in time, the award is conclusive.

         I have been on the lot myself; the soil is good and the situation uncommonly eligible. It lays thus.

[see hand-drawn map in image below]

And is probably worth at least $25. pr. acre.

         This price is conjectural. From the newness of the County it can have no fixed value. The Village of Oswego must in time from its situation be a place of great consequence, but may not arrive at much notoriety in a great many years. As there has been so much fraud practiced in the title of lands in the military tract I should advise you to be cautious in ascertaining the title (so as to leave no doubt) before you purchase.

I am respectfully & Sincerely Yours,

E. T. Throop
