Remarks: I would just state that there has been no pervailing disease in our county to Jun 1 1860 and not a great many deaths as you will see from the statistics.  The character of the water is good, free st____.  The rocks hard and flinty with some few approximations of granite and other species of stone.  The timber is ppine mixed with a variety of ther kinds growing in abundance near the bases of our mountains.
