Henderson's party arrived 4/20/1775, Henderson's 40th birthday, welcomed with a discharge of rifles much rejoicing, and a dinner of cold water and buffalo. Henderson said it was the most joyful banquet he ever saw; <of that there could not be the shadow of a doubt, for with it ended the most intense and protracted strin of care and anxiety he had ever experienced. . . . A journey of a solid month, which, to one used to inns, offices, and court-rooms, seemed a solid year of hardships, aggravations, and miseries, was over. To such a man, worn out and disgusted, the lifting of such a burden changed the poorest hunter's meal into a banquet fit for the gods.> <To the negroes, who say an "Ingin," bloody-handed and awful, behind every rock and tree on the route, the sight of the little log huts was as a sight of heaven itself, and their loud laughter, merry songs, and exclamations of delight echoed along the river and among the very hill-tops.> 80 persons in the united companies, including boys and negroes. [need a break-down of this number.] RANCK:22-23

The first cabins were built in the hollow. Henderson proposed building a fort about three hundred yards from the springs large enough and strong enough to accommodate and protect the stores and the settlers, and be capable of easy future extension. This spot was more elevated, on a flat plateau, and on a ridge over the river. This spot was occupied by Henderson on 4/22/1775. A week was spent making a clearing, felling trees, shaping and notching logs, splitting clapboards, and on 4/29/1775 the fort was begun under DB's supervision, with the building of a small log magazine, half underground, with a shed roof covered with clay to protect it from sparks from chimneys or flaming arrows, or the "live chunks" that settlers were always borrowing from one another. The earliest cabin was commodious enough to accomodate the Company's supplies, which were thrown open to the men, to whom the Company was indebted for their service in roadmaking. In one item of the Company ledger Michael Stoner was charged with and credited with This was the first store opened in KY, says Ranck, forgetting about Findley's store at Indian Old Fields and possibly other traders' stores. Henderson's cabin was the blockhouse near the river on the northeast corner. But as Indian sign decreased, the completion of the fort languished. RANCK:25-26

Elections were held at the four settlements of Boonesborough, Harrodsburg, Boiling Spring (6 miles southeast of Harrodsburg), and St. Asaph's (Logan's Station) a mile west of present-day Stanford, and on Thursday 5/23/1775 the chosen representatives of Transylvania Colony met at Boonesborough. They met under the elm in the hollow. They were in session three days. On Sunday 5/26/1775 they met for a religious service under the elm performed by Rev. John Lythe, Church of England, from VA. being expunged from the liturgy by the Virginia Convention the next spring. In less than a week (6/5/1775) the news of the battle of Lexington reached Boonesborough, Governors Martin and Dunmore were, as the Transylvania delegates met, fleeing or preparing to flee from the colonies.

The shape and general outline of the fort are known from Henderson's plan, preserved and copied, but the original now lost. It was reproduced by James Hall and was in his possession as late as 1835. In 1775 it consisted of 26 one-story log cabins and four block-houses arranged in a hollow square estimated by Hall as 260X180 feet (according to the plan). Spaces between the blockhouses and the cabins were intended to be stodkaded, but these were neglected for the timebeing. All of the cabins in the fort were not continuously occupied, for some of the settlers lived on the lands nearby, some even on farms across the river; but the fort cabins were used by newcomers, and when everyone crowded in in time of Indian scare or attack. Henderson lived in the northeast blockhouse, using the next door cabin for a kitchen where his slave Dan worked. The store formed the end of the station adjoining Henderson's blockhouse.

6/13/1775 DB left Boonesborough to return to VA for his family at Snoddy's Station, the stockaded home of his friend John Snoddy, located at present Castlewood, on Clinch River. Richard Callaway went along to move his family as well. In company with Thomas Hart, en route to NC. With DB a detail of men engaged to bring back the salt left behind at Martin's cabin by Henderson's party; Boonesborough was in the midst of a salt famine, making it difficult to preserve game which had to be brought in quite a distance in the heat. Apparently they waited in Powell's Valley for DB to come up with his family, for Henderson writes 7/18/1775: The settlers tried to make salt from the nearby sulpher spring, but its brine was too weak. Henderson and Luttrell were both anxious to get back to NC on business, but felt they had to wait until DB returned so he could handle things at Boonesborough. When he heard that DB was on the way, he left; he would never return but once in 1780, long after the claims of Transylvania Company were forgotten. On DB's return he was joined by the salt men and quite a few immigrants, including several families from NC, Hugh McGary and his household among them; McGary and others parted company with DB in present Laurel county, but DB brought about 30 persons with him to Boonesborough, arriving 9/8/1775.

DB's was the only family (Rebecca + 8 kids) in the party bound for Boonesborough; plus 21 men. These remained the only women in the settlement for the next three weeks. They first occupied a cabin in the hollow, soon exchanging it for a cabin in the "big fort." On 9/26 Callaway returned with his family in a party that included William Pogue and Barney Stagner and their families, adding three wives and several young women to the station's social life.

At a meeting of the proprietors 9/25/1775 at Oxford, Granville county NC, steps were taken to secure the recognition of the colony as the 14th. James Hogg was chosen as delegate to the Continental Congress. Delegate Silas Deane of CT was favorable, but advised Hogg to get the consent of the VA delegation, <as they would not chuse to do any thing in it without their consent.> Thomas Jefferson said he <would consent to no congressional acknowledgment of the colony until it was approved by the Virginia Convention.> None of the congressmen countenanced a proprietary government. John Adams prepared a paper in which he argued the adoption of full and complete republican constitutions by all the colonies. <It must have been plain to Henderson and Company, even six or eight months before the Declaration of Independence, that the prospects of an American colony with a proprietary form of government were not encouraging.> RANCK:43-44

At the 9/1775 meeting of the proprietors they advanced the price of land from 20 to 50 shillings per hundred acres, which raised a storm of controversy. In 12/1775, John Williams, uncle of Henderson, recently elected general agent of the colony, arrived and opened a land office. John Floyd was appointed surveyor, Nathaniel Henderson entry officer, Richard Harrison secretary. Settlers delivered a formal remonstrance to him about land prices. His reply was not satisfactory and the trouble grew. RANCK:44

<The event was a prophecy of evil, . . . the beginning of days and years of trouble.> Another omen was that other Indian stragglers went to Nathaniel Hart's clearing during the excitement over the girls, burned his cabin and ruined his young apple orchard. Families left their farms and forted at Boonesborough. The fort was completed according to plan: stockaded and provided with cumbersome but substantial gates. But numbers of people left for the settlements; 7/20/1776 the discouraged settlers of Hinkston's Station camped inside the fort on their way back to VA, and were joined by 10 Boonesborough people, leaving less than 30 riflemen to defend the fort.

Elizabeth Callaway and Samuel Henderson, a brother of Richard Henderson, were married 8/7/1776; officiated by Squire Boone, a Baptist elder. <At this, the first marriage that took place in Kentucky, there was dancing to fiddle-music by the light of tallow "dips," and legend says the guests were treated to home-grown watermelons, of which the whole station was proud.> RANCK:52-53

1/1/1777 about half a dozen refugees from McClelland's fort came to Boonesborough; the Indians, contrary to usual custom, had been active in the winter, and the last station north of the Kentucky had been abandoned. In March DB appointed by VA to the command of the fort, and before the militia of KY county could be organized, a number of Shawnees were seen about the fort. They were led by BLACKFISH. Two settlers were waylaid and killed as they went toward the stockade. DB appointed Simon (Kenton) Butler and Thomas Brooks as scouts. 4/24/1777 the fort was attacked about sunrise by 50-100 Shawnees; were only 22 riflemen in the fort; barely defended themselves against defeat. Indians successfully maneuvered to draw out the garrison and Daniel Goodman was killed and scalped, but the Indian was killed by Kenton. The men were cut off from the fort and regained it only after a desperate fight in which DB, Isaac Hite, John Todd, and Michael Stoner were all wounded; DB saved by Kenton. RANCK:57

Food again a problem in the summer of 1777. The raiding Indians had destroyed much of the corn crop, game was scarce, ammunition low; in fact gunpowder for a time was entirely exhausted; DB and a couple of other frontiersmen who were skilled in survival, took the hoarded store of brimstone and saltpetre, made some charcoal, and concocted powder enough to tide the settlement over the emergency. (Later, in Detroit, DB would impress Gov. Hamilton by making powder again.) Settlers survived on a little corn, potatoes, turnips; in the fall pawpaws and wild grapes were a great blessing, and the settlers brought in great stores of wild walnuts and hickory nuts. Salt was in very low supply. RANCK:61

Long Siege Leader of the European contingent among the beseigers was Dagnieau DeQuindre (whom DB incorrectly identifies as "DuQuesne" in Filson -- perhaps confusing him with Isadore De Chaine, one of the twelve Frenchmen along who acted as a sometime interpreter; DB's mistake perpetuated for more than a century) was a French Canadian from Montreal, now of the Detroit Militia; 35 years old; married, his family in Detroit; employed mainly among the Lake Indians; remained with the British throughout the war; died in 1784. Blackfish was in general command, according to Peck, who got that from DB himself, and also according the LCD ("all under the command of Black Fish"). Other important Indian leaders: Black Bird, a Chippewa, who shortly after changed to the American side; Moluntha, a Shawnee leader in all the serious movements against the Kentucky posts; Catahecassa or Black Hoof, who was already a mature warrior when he participated in Braddock's defeat in 1755, and who was the only person present who could claim to be a native of KY.

Moved swiftly from their towns to the Ohio, crossed it near the mouth of Cabin Creek, from where they followed the war road to a point beyond the Upper Blue Licks, there entered the great buffalo trace which took them to the fort. DB and his men returned from the Paint Lick Creek expedition sometime before sunset on the afternoon of 9/6/1778. That night the Shawnee camped on the north bank of the river, the next morning crossing about 1/2 mile below the present ferry ("Blackfish Ford"), climbed the steep southern bank, passed to the rear of Hackberry Ridge, marched along its base until nearly opposite the fort, then crossed the ridge and came down to a cover of trees and undergrowth within rifle shot of the fort.

Long Siege After the settlers had rejected their offer, the Shawnees were convinced that there was no chance for a peaceful surrender. They were wary, because a prisoner from KY had told them that the garrison had recently been reinforced (Hamilton to Haldimand, 9/1/1778). They decided for stratagem. On their part the settlers had a strong reason for wanting to gain time. Also Ranck notes that Black Bird went over to the Americans shortly after the siege; as did one of the officers, Baubin, who had also aided in the capture of the saltmakers. [Big point here -- the maleability of identities at this juncture.] RANCK:85-86

VA passed the "Land Law" in 5/1778, and the settlement fever for KY took hold. Most settlers through the Gap rested at Boonesborough, then went out to locate their claims. 12/18/1779 hundreds of settlers crowded into the settlement for the land court which opened there on that day. DB seems to have hurried back to attend this court, probably reaching the settlement the last of 12/1779 after the court had adjourned; he is quoted as entering land on the Commissioners' books a few days after, while the court was being held at Bryan's Station. Soon thereafter he left for Richmond to buy land warrants. RANCK:113

Transylvania ceased to exist. <Certain features of the Company's plan of government deserved the condemnation they received, but for the great work it did in opening up a continuous path to the banks of the Kentucky, in planting the strongest early barrier against the Indians, inspiring the desperate people with hope, and insuring the permanent occupation of the soil, it fully merited all the compensation it received, and will ever hold a prominent place in the history of the Commonwealth.> RANCK:54-55

By 12/1777 the supply of salt was exhausted. Not only was the diet dull, but sickness threatened. This was when the saltmaking mission to the Lower Blue Licks was conceived. Took 500-800 gallons of water to make a bushel of salt. Two bushels per pack horse. A bushel worth a cow and calf in barter. RANCK:64-65

In the aftermath of its founding, food was a problem. Squads of hunters detailed out of the 65 riflemen (out of a total of 80 persons) had to range 15-30 miles for game that was the almost sole food of the settlers. Boone's men had planted corn a few days after they arrived; when Henderson came up more was planted, and companies were organized to work the fields in common -- men signing an agreement to appear every morning at the blast of a horn or sound of a drum and labor in the fields or stand guard while others worked.

Fort Boone was neglected from the start. But these attacks were from small bands of Indians without tribal sanction. No regular parties came to harrass the settlers for at least a year. By the time Cocke arrived with word of Henderson's relief, the Indians had already been almost forgotten. RANCK:21

DB had found an ideal spot for a camp. The generations of animals frequenting the lick had contributed to the production of a rich loamy soil surrounding it, and the land was open, firm, and almost free from undergrowth, adorned with patches of fine white clover and carpeted with a natural grass now known as "bluegrass." The site had two springs -- certainly appreciated by an experience pioneer like DB -- One was a sulphur spring which impregnated the ground about it with salt precipitated from its waters, creating the lick; the other fresh and abundant, which became known ironically as "The Lick Spring." These were located in a depression grown thick with sycamores (buttonwood trees), their trunks polished white by the incessant throng of the salt-seeking animals, three of which were immense; and also one huge elm which Henderson pronounced "divine." Construction of log huts began in the hollow on 4/1/1775. RANCK:19-20

From the "battleground" DB forged ahead, cut a way through the cane down the meandering course of Otter Creek to the southern bank of KY river, and had connected this path there with the great buffalo trace which led to the site he had chosen for the seat of Transylvania Company. As they came up they heard the stomping feet of a drove of 200-300 hundred buffalo, which quickly made off from the salt lick and forded the river, The work had been hard: chopping saplings, cutting away vines and overhanging branches, blazing the way through the woods, marking mile-trees, removing logs and fallen timber, connecting paths, filling sinkholes, burning their way through dead brush, logging streams, cutting through endless canebreaks.

Food was in short supply in 1775; it was skimpy even at Henderson's cabin, but Henderson's slave "black Dan" managed to keep a supply of meat, of vegetables from the fort garden, catfish from the river, and milk from the cows, from which he concocted "punches." RANCK:32

Perhaps the best defensive feature before the completion of the fort in 1776 was the cleared ground about it; a few trees were left standing inside the stokade, and others grew down on the rugged slope to the river, but around the fort the trees were cleared, although the stumps remained. The hill in front of the fort was known ad "Hackberry Ridge." RANCK:26-27

At Martin's, Henderson was joined by William Calk and four other VA emigrants; here they had to abandon the wagons, cache much of the supplies, and continue only with the packhorses. Reached the Gap on 4/7/1775, where DB's messenger met them, bringing news of the Indian attack, causing several of the men to turn back that very night. The next day they met retreating, panic-striken adventurers. It became important to send a message to DB to let him know relief was on the way. On 4/10, on the banks of Cumberland River Henderson tried to get a volunteer to go forward; finally William Cocke volunteered, but no one would go with him. Henderson provided him with <a good Queen Anne musket, plenty of ammunition, a tomahawk, a large 'cuttoe' knife, a Dutch blanket, and no small quantity of jerked beef> and he started out alone on a ride of 130 miles. <It was one of the most romantic deeds in the annals of the wilderness.> RANCK:15-16

RHENDERSON had begun moving westward on 3/20/1775 in DB's wake. His party included 40 mounted riflemen, "quite a number of negro slaves," a drove of cattle, forty packhorses, and a train of wagons loaded with provisions, ammunition, material for making gunpowder, seed corn, garden seed, and a store of trade goods needed at an isolated settlement. Accompanied by four other proprietors of the company: the Harts and John Luttrell. Also his brother Samuel Henderson, William Cocke ("who had recently declined militia service under the royal Governor of Virginia"), William Bailey Smith, who had been a witness of the treaty, and was going out as a surveyor. Got the wagons to the log shelter of Captain Joseph Martin, the Company's agent for the Powell's Valley division of its purchase, who had gone in advance of Henderson with several men. Martin had previously explored the region as a trader, and this cabin was one he had previously used; it came to be known as "Boone's Path Post-office." RANCK:13-14

After two weeks of work, unimpeded, they were attacked by Indians on 3/25/1775: Twetty and his black manservant killed, Felix Walker wounded. Two nights later attacked again; the men had not set a watch; were drying the badly-soaked moccasins by a large fire; Thomas McDowell and Joseph McPheeters killed and scalped; rest stampeeded barefoot through the snow and escaped. DB, "who seems to have been invested by the Company with military powers," send a courier to "all of the lower companies" [who quoting?] of hunters and settlers in KY to assemble at the mouth of Otter Creek, anticipating a general Indian effort to eradicate the settlers, and sent a messenger to Henderson to hurry forward with aid.

The Cherokees camped about the stockaded cabins. Took its name from the great sycamore trees which adorned the banks of the shoals of Watauga river; the seat of the famous Watauga Association, southern bank of the river, three miles below the present site of Elizabethton, Carter county TN. This was a familiar rendezvous to the Indians. For the company the negotiators were Henderson, Hart, Luttrell; for the Cherokees Ocanostota, Attacullaculla, Savanooko, and Dragging Canoe. RANCK:7-8

3/8/1780 Richard Callaway, Pemberton Rawlings (or Rollins) and three slaves were building a ferry boat on Canoe Ridge, about a mile above Boonesborough; in the settlement was heard a volley of shots, and soon after one of the Negroes came rushing in with the news that they had been attacked by Indians. Capt. Holder led a party of mounted riflemen upriver, where they found Callaway naked, scalped, and dead, Rollins tomahawked in the back of the nect and scalped, though still alive, the other two slaves gone, presumably into captivity. Rollins died before the end of the day. The attackers were Shawnees, for Joseph Jackson, who was still a captive, saw his distinctive gray scalp brought in by the warriors. {See 11C62[28]} RANCK:116-117

RHENDERSON came back in the spring of 1780. He was now a commissioner appointed by NC to run the boundry line between NC and VA, and was promoting the settlement of the Company's lands on the lower Cumberland, within the supposed boundary of NC. He was trying to procure grain for his colony at French Lick, the future Nashville. He was only there five days. The corn he bought cost $200/bushel, continental money, and was shipped down the Kentucky and up the Cumberland by log perogue, under the command of William B. Smith. Henderson returned to French Lick where he soon after opened an office for the sale of Company lands. 1781 member of the NC House of Commons; 1783 his company received 200,000 acres from NC as compensation for lost Transylvaina lands. Ca 1783 he retired to his estate, located some seven miles NE of Williamsboro, Granville (now Vance) county NC. Died 1/30/1785 at 50. Ten years later the Transylvania Company (despite 200,000 acres from NC and 200,000 more from VA) was still appealing to Congress for redress of alleged wrongs. RANCK:115-116

Richard Henderson & Company to Patrick Henry, Hillsborough, 4/26/1775: <The copartners in the purchase of lands, on Louisa, from the Indians, neither intending by their distant and hazardous enterprize, to revolt from their allegiance to their sovereign, nor yet to desert the grand and common cause of their American brethren and fellow subjects, in their many and glorious struggle for the full enjoyment of the natural rights of mankind, and the inestimable liberties and priviledges of our happy constitution, were anxious to know the result of the wise and mature deliberations of the Convention, and particular in their enquiries concerning the several matters which became the subject of consideration in that august assembly. . . . The true point of view in which, we are told, you, with several other gentlemen, conceived the nature of the contract, and the eloquence and good sense with which you defended, and the liberal principles on which you supported our claim to the benefit of our engagement with the Indians, in addition to the universal applause of the whole continent, for your noble and patriotick exertions, give you an especial claim to our particular acknowledgements, of which we take this earliest opportunity of begging your acceptance. It would, Sir, have afforded us the most singular satisfaction to have had it in our power to give you a more substantial evidence of our gratitude. . . . Convinced that our purchase is neither against the laws of our country, nor the principles of natural justice and equity, and conscious to ourselves of the uprightness of our intentions, we totally disregard the reproaches thrown out against us by ill-informed or envious and interested persons; and now encouraged by the approbation of the respectable Provincial Congress of Virginia, we shall hereafter pursue with eagerness what we at first adopted with caution.> <N.B. -- A copy of the above letter sent to Thos. Jefferson, Esqr., Virginia.> RANCK:194-195

5/14/1775: <No Divine service, our church not being finished -- that is to say, about 50 yards from the place where I am writing and right before me to the south (the River about 50 yards behind my camp and a fine spring a little to the west) stands one of the finest elms, that perhaps nature ever produced in any region. This tree is placed in a beautiful plain surrounded by a turf of fine white clover forming a green to its very stock to which there is scarcely anything to be likened. The trunk is about 4 feet through to the first branches which are about 9 feet high from the ground from thence above it so regularly extends its large branches on every side at such equal distances as to form the most beautiful tree that imagination can suggest. The diameter of its branches from the extream [sic] ends is 100 feet -- and every fair day it describes a semiciecle on the heavenly green around it, of upward of 400 feet and any time between the hours of 10 and 2 100 persons may commodiously seat theselves under its branches. This divine tree or rather one of the many proofs of the existance from all eternity of its Divine Author, is to be our church, state-house, council chamber &c and having many things on our hands have not had time to erect a pulpit, seats &c but hope by Sunday, Sennight [?], to perform divine service for the first time -- in a public manner and that to a set of scoundrels who scarcely believe in God or fear a devil if we were to judge from most of their looks, words and actions.> Richard Henderson "Journal, 1775" in RANCK:176-177

5/9/1775: <Our plantation business went on as usual, some people planting others preparing &c -- We found it very difficult at first to stop great waste in killing meat. Some would kill three, four, five or 1/2 dozen buffaloes and not take half a horse load from them all. For want of a little obligatory law our game as soon as we got here, if not before, was driven off very much. Fifteen or 20 miles was as short a distance as good hunters thought of geeting meat, nay sometimes they were obliged to go thirty though by chance once or twice a week buffaloe was killed within 5 or six miles. It was some pleasure to find wonton men were afraid of discovery & I am convinced this fear saved the lives of many buffaloes, elks and deer -- as to bear, no body wasted any that was fit to eat nor did we care about them.> Richard Henderson "Journal, 1775" in RANCK:176

They came on Harrods invitation. These men had got possession some time before we got here. The reception our plan of legislation met with from these gentlemen as well as Capt Floyd gave us great pleasure and we threrfore immediately set about the business and appointed a meeting for Tuesday the 23d Instant at Boonesborough and according made out writings for the different towns to sign and wrote to Capt Floyd appointing an election.

After the attack, while desperation was felt by most of the men, Some men went back. One man, who had run off during the attack, was seen peeping from behind a tree by a black woman gathering wood who belonged to Col. Callaway. She ran to camp with the Indian alarm. The men found their courage; the man came in and announced himself, ending the crisis. Walker says They remained in camp 12 days, waiting for Walker to recover. Finally they carried him in a litter between two horses, the twelve remaining miles to the Kentucky river.

Began 3/10/1775 from Long Island of Holston. Crossed the ranges, through the Gap, to Rockcastle river. Leaving there had to cut their way through a country of some 20 miles, entirely covered with dead brush, a difficult and laborous task. Then arrived at a cane country; 30 miles through thick canbreak and reeds. As the cane ceased they 3/25/1775 fired on by the Indians as they slept in camp about an hour before daybreak.

The traditional name for the river by the "Indians" was "Kentucky." John Salling, held captive by the Cherokees in the 1730s, wrote in the '40s of "the salt licks of Kentucky" [citing Withers' BORDER WARFARE]. Alexander Maginty, held by Indians, deposed in 1753 that they captured him "on the south bank of the Cantucky" [citing Philadelphia deposition in Howe]. George Croghan wrote in his journal of 1765 of "the River Kentucky." Christopher Gist in 1751 wrote it "Cuttaway," similar to the designation on Lewis Evans 1755 map: "Cuttawa." Meaning: Darlington in Archives Americana says Mohawk meaning "among the meadows." Johnson, INDIAN TRIBES OF OHIO, claimed it was Shawnee for "at the head of a river." Filson was the first to claim it meant "the Dark and Bloody Ground," citing no authority. [George R. Stewart, AMERICAN PLACE-NAMES (New York: Oxford UP, 1970): <probably from Iroquois KENTAKE, "meadow-land," in which case the river would have taken its name from the region name or from some particular meadow.>] RANCK:143-145

James Hogg to Richard Henderson, 1/1776: He found Samuel and John Adams friendly to the new colony but they raised a problem: They were quieted some in this fear by the language of the Memorial which Hogg showed them, but they raised another problem: that and On their part, the Virginia delegates observed that our purchase was within their charter territory, and hinted that they might just take the whole of it. Hogg pointed to the treaty between Virginia and the Cherokees, in which Virginia acknowledged that what they had not purchased remained with the Indians, and that was what the company had purchased. Jefferson declared that this was not his concern, but rather the form of government established. Finally, the Virginians insisted that any approval come from the Virginia Convention. Hogg wrote of much interest in the speculative potential of the colony, suggested that Silas Deane was particularly interested in this aspect. But the greatest problem was the one articulated by Jefferson: RANCK:224-229 TRANSYLVANIA John Williams, reply to the Harrodsburg Remonstrance of 12/1775, Boonesborough, 1/1/1776: The terms on which we offer lands is RANCK:230-232
