The aforeseaid Possessions lie within a very short distance of the village of Mormond, and the Lime Kilns of Strichen; are in general of a good early soil; some of them have a very considerable proportion of old infield land, which, together with a great part of the outfield, is of the best quality, and produce weighty crops of every sort.  In short, they are as elegible commodious small Possessions as are to be met with.  Several of them lie contiguous to each other; such will be let together, if tenants incline.

For particulars, apply to John Anderson, Factor at Strichen, to whom offers may be give in, to the 1st of September next.

The Possessions will be shewn by James Horne, the Ground-Officer.

There will also be let, for such a number of Grain Crops as shall be agreed on, and INCLOSURE, of about 14 acres, on the MAINS of STRICHEN, which has been in Pasture about 72 years. - Entry at Martinmas first.

Strichen, 15th July, 1813.
