Scope & Content Scotchtown May 21st 1828 Dear Brother,
The place last Monday was surveyd by James Faulkner and makes 86 and 6/10 acres, 1/10 more than the old deed specified, I expect Mr Warnack up every day to give me my deed. I expect to pay $1350 which will leave a ballance of 382 dollars unpaid which I can pay in the fall. I have about $500 yet standing out in notes.
I am quite unwell with a bad cold but I hope I shall soon get better. The rest are all as well as common. I wish you would write to let me know how you all do and how you made out with Satterlys business.
I have employed Judge Jackson in Goshen to search out the title and I calculate to have the title good before I pay any money. Mr Archibald Crawford, surveyor, which assisted Mr Faulkner in running out the land, thinks with Mr Faulkner that the land I have purchased is worth $25 pr acre.
My respects to all our friends and accept my best wishes for your happiness.
Seth Williamson Scotchtown
