mill-race of the late George Gale, and on the public road leading
from the Brick Meeting-House by Richard Reynold's mill, to the
lower ferry on Susquehanna river, and running thence in the
most convenient course till it intersects the public road leading
from the lower ferry to Battle Swamp, just below the mouth of
a run called Bateman's Fresh.

commissioners, or any two of them, to cause a plot and certificate
of said road to be made, as soon as can be conveniently done,

3. And be it enacted, That all that part of the present public
road leading from the point where the road hereby authorised and

thorised and empowered to close and stop up the same, and the
said land, in the several and respective portions, according to
their several metes and bounds, to occupy and use, as fully and
amply as if the same had never been declared to be a public
road; Provided always, that Levin Gale and Henry Chamber-
laine, their heirs, executors or assigns, shall, at their own pro-
per costs and charges, make the road, to be located under the
provisions of this act, good and passable, and have a certificate
of its being so made, signed by the commissioners aforesaid, or
any two of them, returned to the levy court of said county, be-
fore they shall stop the road hereby authorised to be shut up.
4. And be it enacted, That when the said road is made good and
passable, and a certificate of that fact returned as aforesaid, then
