faid Province of Mary-land, himfelfe or his Deputy, with
ten able men fit for labour, betweene the ages of 20. and
60. every man being provided in all things neceffary for
a plantation: the particulars whereof they fhall vnder-
ftand at the place mentioned at the end of thefe Con-
ditions: (which together with their tranfportation,
will amount to about 20 l. a man) His Lordfhip will
affigne to euery fuch vndertaker, and for every fuch tenne
men, a proportion of good land within the faid Pro-
vince, containing in quantity 3000. Acres of Englifh
meafure, which fhall bee erected into a Mannor, and bee
conveied to him, and his heires for ever: with all fuch
