State of the farm when I left it

Explanation -- The dwelling house door looks due south. The road running from the dwelling house extends due East -- The dotted lines show the roads -- The double lines show the double ditches -- The trees show a line of locust trees planted by Revd. F. Walton -- According to the statement I have given, there were when I went to the farm 2040 yds. of old ditch. I made 2260 yds. more. For good reason, having consulted the overseer & old people of the farm, I filled up 60 yds. of old ditch & 200 yds. of the new ditches which I had made. The Brick barn was built by F. Francis Neale before I went down, but not quite finished. A new stable was built at the quarters by Br. Jos. Marshal when I was teaching at the College under F. Grassie. The Windmill, Miller's house, weaving house, cow house, hen house and Smith's shop

Crops made on St. Inigo's farm were built in my time.
