geiitecly finifned, and contains four handfomc rooms on

gri<eab!i profr>e& of the Delaware, from the fou'ee of that
nvtr to the Capes. This profpet"; ia greatly einbtllifhed by
a full view of a vast body df meadow, through which the
fhrifiiana and Brandywine creeks are fern winding in beao- '
tiful meanders. Near ihc house are a Kitchen, a spacious 1
flone liable and hay loft, a barn, a carriage house, milK
houfe,&c. and a weli oif as puie water as any on the conti
nent. The garden contains an acre and quarter of land, a
boundine with fru«, ? nd particularly wi:ri peach trees, of
t he very bed kind, brought from Maryland, and in full bear
ing. There is, moreover, on the place, a young, apple
orchard begining to bear, and leveral old trees that produce
abundantly, besides cherry and other ornamental trees, ,u
jreat numbers. The farm confifls r.f nrar sixty acrcs ol land,
of good quality, and clear of ineurnbunctf, exccpt taxes,
twenty of which arenow in excellent clover and timothy, 1
and ten more will be ready for sowing next spring. A ie

the lunation is remarkably healthy. The great poll load fc
"from Philadelphia to the Southward runs within seventy t
yards of the house. In a woid, the bea.itits and conveni-. t
