Lwne Terrien N. 2. Layer 13. Louis Bissonnet, Transcribed
I am expressing the transport of my home to
this said post on St. LouisSt Louis land of an arpent large on
fourty others long, a partly plowed part
situated in the prairie touching this village and the immediate farming
of Mr. Gamache and the border of
Chemin Royal that is thirty six feet of RoyRoy and the two other
sides in the area of RoyRoy measured in arpents with my instrument
a length of fourty five feet with length taken
four times utilizing just an arpent of the country that is of One Hundred Eighty feet on each side
made while
accompanying the propietor and said Mr. Gamache,
too immediate of a neighbor to me to serve as a witness I believe
to indicate a favorable situation of our
respective concessions, I went by and have limited the presence of stones to his four quarters before having
the lines measured in width and length whose first two
parallel ranges are said width going north north
east extending to the northeast twenty two degrees, thirty
minutes and the two others are of said length also
parallel ranges in the west part of the northwest where the greater
extends northwest eleven degrees fifteen minutes
without a variation in compass reading in beginning or ending point
in the north north east and in the west part going north
west, an obtus angle decending a degree fifteen minutes, having different causes for the discrepancies of land and the bend of these lines. The other known
perpendicular horizontal range always measure true to us
for the width and the length, I
attest my signature and for the unanimous opinion of all
the proprietors assembled at this moment with
the approval of said Mr. Dn Pedro Piernas in the house
of government to serve our land mutually
