will never fall into Pennington's Ponds, but fall short,
depriving the said Saughier of near upon half the land
intended at the first survey, and especially the land next adjacent
to the said Pennington's Ponds, at which Ponds the above
said survey had its first beginning.

    " Now it is so that if the certificate had said west and by
south the line east and by north would have fallen into
Pennington's Ponds, but not without prejudice to one Adam
Dulap, whose line and Saughier's line are both one, and if
instead of a line east and by north, the certificate had said east
and by south to Pennington's Pond, leaving the west and by
north line as it is, it would have deprived one William
Ramsey of a good part of his land¾

    " 1. Therefore my opinion is, that to do each man right,
that the said George Saughier, obtaineth a warrant from the
hon'ble governor, to the end that he may get a new
survey made of his land.

    " 2. That the land to be laid out by my cousin George
Yate, who is best informed of the situation thereof.

    "3. That captain Burgess and captain Brown,
commissioners of Ann Arundel county, be appointed by the hon'ble
governor to assist at the ending of the difference to see that
equity may be done, and that Adam Dulap and William
Ramsey be there present

    " 4thly. Having always regard at the naturall bounds, and
that Dulap and Ramsey may equally sustain damage, that
a line be drawn west from Pennington's Ponds and also a
west line drawn from the point by the creek where the
poplar stood, and a paralell be drawn with South river from the
end of one of the west lines till it intersects the other at
such a distance as shall allow the said Saughier two
hundred and eighty acres of land.

                        JEROME WHITE, Survey. Genll."

    On the back side of the aforementioned opinion of the
surveyor generall was thus written, viz.

" To captain Burges and Mr. Richard Ewins.

    " By the inclosed writing you will find that the surveyor
generall has made a report of a difference about a parcel of
land in the possession of George Saughier, and his opinion of
the whole matter; it is thought requisite that the said
Saughier have a west line run instead of west and by north,
which if you find to be no prejudice to any person, you may
cause George Yate to lay it out accordingly; and for his
and your so doing, this shall be your warrant. Given under
my hand, this thirteenth of March 1666.

                                    CHARLES CALVERT."
