I am informed that Mr Pratt and Mr Hunt are cutting wood upon my land by your order that they cut last year twenty cord and have now marked out 30 more If this is true I presume it is by mere mistake of the boundaries between you and me. I shall be obliged to you if your will inform me upon what lot of yours they are cutting which joins me and wish that this may be inquired into. I am...
I am informed that Mr. Brackett has cut off one lot of Mr Adams’s land almost half way down from the upper end, by mistake. It is not worth while at your age & mine for us to go to law about a few acres of mud and a few cords of wood. I therefore propose that we agree upon two or three honest neighbours and upon a skillful, experienced & scientific surveyor to go upon the spot and decide the...
I wrote you a few lines on Jany: 15th. and another on Feby: 2d. but have received no answer to either. I should be glad to receive a candid answer to both.

I have been informed that boundary trees or blazed trees have been cut down & carried away that heaps of stones...
I have received with pleasure your civil & friendly letter of Feb’y 26th I am very far from censuring your fathers attachment to the lands of his ancestors I have felt & still feel a similar fondness for those of my own, these are natural feelings & amiable sentiments I have not tender Motives for doating on the lot in questions it was purchased for me with the hard earnings of my laborious...
Inclosed are two letters from a Mr Farmer of Billerica; a Gentlemen whom I never saw, or heard of—also a plan of a Farm in Chelmsford with some notes; by which it appear, that the Brackets and Adams’s emigrated from Mount Waliston very early to Billerica, and Chelmsford—As every Civility requires a return I could do no less than acknowledge the receipt of his letter— I have written him that...
