give them the privilege of taking up the entire purchase.4th, to distribute the lots in whatever way may be determined by the charter members.It is hoped that some of the members may feel disposed to take several lots and either hold them for the public good without expectation of selling, or to sell them to future members at perhaps double the rate paid for them.Will you do me the favor to let me know as soon as convenient how many lots you wish to subscribe for. A plot of the purchase with the lots numbered ready for distribution is in preparation.Purchasers are, or course, at liberty to occupy the tract at once. I and some other purchasers will spend a portion of the present summer there.Very truly yours,W. R. Reid.
