[Letter] 1714 April, Woodstock [to] Col. William Dudley/ John Chandler.

Title: [Letter] 1714 April, Woodstock [to] Col. William Dudley/ John Chandler.
Personal Author: Chandler, John.
Date: 1714 April.
Extent: [1] leaf.
Abstract: Chandler explains that though he had endeavored to have his son make the survey on the north half of town as Dudley desired, it was not possible for his son to do so. Chandler points out, however, that Captain George Fairbanks had a survey of his 300 acres, as did Wilson Rawson and Moses Aldridge. Chandler characterizes Fairbanks as the "most Criminall [sic]" for his acquisitiveness about Dudley's land and the land of an Indian (whose name is not specified). Chandler states that Fairbanks should be made an example for "he madly ran over the head all the advice" and entreaties. Chandler then discusses matters arising from the disposal of land belonging to "black James," stating that his opinions have been misrepresented in the matter. He urges Dudley to look up Fairbanks' deed on record, and gives bearings and landmarks.
