we have rode over this Afternoon--being
a fine rich red mold heavily Timberd with
White Pine, Sugar Maple, Beach, Button

Brush. One kind calld the Trip up which
produces a Berry now red, but when ripe
nearly black--the Reds are very fond of
them & we eat some--within a few miles
of Rich. Moores we came to a branch of Pine Creek
& forded it I believe at least a Dozen times
we found the Road a little muddy this after
noon but better than we expected & soon
after getting in it began to rain.
Benjamin Mooress Track of Land
extends about 6 miles further being ab. 19 or
20 miles in length & from 2 to 4 in width

this place, where they [?] Co. have
also a considerable Track of Land.
