1/2/1855 Intelligencer ALSO AT PRIVATE SALE

A FARM of about 60 ACRES, in Haycock; and as productive as any in the county; a first-rate House, Barn, and other improvements. This is a rare chance for an industrious farmer with a small capital. As the subscriber has been down with rheumatism for the last six weeks, he is getting tired of holding so much property, and will now sell at almost any price. Should he recover his health soon, he may change his mind; so you that want to buy, now is your time to do so, while he is on his back, unable to hunt up a better customer.
