Remarks: There are few Rocks of any description here for Building or other purposes. The timbers growing naturaly is Hicory BlackJack and Poast Oak with ocasional bodies of Pines. ? Oak is Sufficiently abundant in many places to authorise the Establishment of foundries and the dr--ing wells. This county is fast peopling with persons generouse Hospitable industrious and virtuos caring and bids fair soon to vie with any of its sister counties in Texas.
