In answer to your letter Mr. C. Clark is the man that has excepted of those to lots & wants you to send him a deed the first of December & the money will be ready as soon as I get the deed I will see that you have the money in return he has all ready raised his house.

I saw Mr. Clayson the other day & asked me if you had any agent here to sell lots & look after your interest. I told him you had not any agent he asked if i new a good man to be an agent. I told him Mr. Sherman my partner would be a good one for you. I would like the use of the public square to clean it up another year it is all growing up to brush and it looks bad. I would like the use of it fer three years if you want to let me have it you can let me know.
