< been selected for the Purpose of being sold, and a large Part

siderable Portion of the different Kinds of Property so selected
for Sale would still remain undisposed of after the necessary

perty so remaining undisposed of under the said therein recited
Acts, and to make further Sales of Property of the like Descrip-
tion; it was enacted, that it should be lawful for the said Sur-
veyor General for the Time being to contract or agree with

⚫ undivided Share jointly with Individuals, and of Lands dispersed
in small Quantities and intermixed with the Property of Indi-
viduals, and lying remote from other Property belonging to the
