The lot, no. 13 on the south side of the old French road leading from the head of the Little Joggin to St. Mary's Bay, containing 200 acres was first assigned to Dr. Tobias, who relinquished his right to the former lands in favor of Johnson. Petitioner has improved the land, and was surprised 6 months ago when informed the land was assigned to the late Judge Hicks. Petitioner prays he may be granted the same.
