In Consequence of this Arrangement, His EXCELLENCY has given Instructions to th Deputy Surveyor General, to proceed to this new selected Site on Friday the 10th of the ensuing Month of November, for the Purpose of dividing the said Township of Pitt Town into convenient Allotments. –

And those Persons whose Farms in that township are liable to be flooded, are hereby required to attend at the Place and Time herein mentioned to see their respective Allotments invoked out.
