as there

are Free... holders, every

one whereof

whereof is to be subdivided into three, fo will the firft ferve for Arrable, the second for Ley Ground, and the third and last for Meadow, if there be any. And if one sheet will not contain the whole, then may you take two. or three, or so many as you fee conveniept., Next you are to take the Plot,' and ge
