Worthington, Capt. Charles Ballard, and Mr Benjamin Wales,
be, and are hereby appointed Commissioners, to cause Three
Thousand Acres of Land to be laid out where the said Indians

Nanticoke River, and the same to appoint to the Use of the
said Indians, for so long as they shall occupy the same. And
further, to cause such Land to be valued in such Manner as is
herein after expressed; That is to say, The said Commis-
sioners, or any Three of them, shall, some Time before the
Twenty-fifth Day of March next, meet together, and make out
