[3] Schuyler, witnesseth that the said Schuyler has leased for the season certain grounds, being a portion of his farm in the township of German Flats, for the purpose of allowing the same to be used as a military camp.

The State has the authority and power to have as much land as is necessary and as they desire to occupy, and to put such fixtures on the ground as may be necessary; and they are to pay for the said land at the rate of $10.00 per acre. The State is to fix the fences that may be necessarily removed, and put them back as they were, or pay for the same being done. The State has the right to remove the fixtures after this lease has expired.

H. J. Schuyler. Albert Story, Quartermaster 121st N. Y.
In presence of Amos H. Prescott.

There is nothing on record about the physical characteristics or structural features of this camp to suggest beauty or interest, and the stay of the 121st in it was so short after their muster in, that nothing worth remembering by the men seems to have occurred there.

By a partial agreement among themselves the company offices were to be apportioned according to the number each had enlisted; and this agreement was so closely adhered to, that there was little dissatisfaction when the order of the Governor was received, completing the organization of the Regiment.
