TRUST SALE BY virtue of a Deed of Trust from William A. Mitchell and Robert C. Mitchell, to me, recorded in the county Court of Culpeper, in Deed Book No. 5, page 247 I shall on Monday the 3d day of February, 1845, sell on the premises, at public auction, to the highest bidder, the tract of land conveyed to me by the said Deed, on the following terms: About $4,700 will be required to be paid in cash; the residue of the purchase money will be payable in several annual installments, to be secured by bonds with good security and a Deed of Trust on the land.

The said tract of land contains by a recent survey 709 acres. - It lies about six miles north-east of Culpeper Court House, in an excellent neighborhood. The soil is very similar to that of the red lands of Albemarle and Orange, and was originally of the best quality. It has been somewhat impaired by hard cultivation of late, but is yet very good condition, and is peculiarly improvable by the use of Clover and Plaster. This land formerly belonged to Capt. James M. Bell and was considered to be one of the best farms in Culpeper County. The buildings are a small dwelling house and the usual out-houses. Persons desirous of purchasing, are invited to examine the land before the day of sale. It will be shown by Mr. Thomas Hawley who resides on it, or by the subscriber, who resides at Culpeper Courthouse. I shall convey such title as is vested in me by the Deed aforesaid; it is believed to be perfect. de27-wtds JOHN C. GREEN, Trustee
