--Pursuant to the provisions of a deed of trust, dated the 24th October, 1860, and recorded in the Clerk's Office of Hanover County Court, on the 25th October, 1860, from Burwell B. Dickinson, and Otery F., his wife, to the subscriber, I shall, at the request of-- & Hutcheson, the beneficiaries in said deed, on Friday, the 10th of April, 1861. (if fair; if not, the first fair day thereafter, Sundays excepted,) proceed to sell at auction, for Cash, to the highest bidder, at Green Bay, in the upper end of Hanover, three miles from Beaver Dam Depot, on the Virginia Central Railroad, and half a mile from Green Bay Crossing, the following property; or so much there of as may be necessary to pay the debt, $2,004.80, secured by said deed of trust with interest thereon from the 24th October, 1860, and all costs of preparing and enforcing said deed of trust, selling the Negroes first. The property to be sold is thus described in the deed of trust; "Five Slaves — man Henry, man Ned, boy John, girl Jane, and woman Milly; and the Tract of land, in the county of Hanover, on which the said Burwell B. Dickinson now resides, with all the appurtenances thereof, estimated to contain 50½ acres, being the saine land which was conveyed to the said Burwell B. Dickinson by Wm. Hancock, and which adjoins the lands of E. A. Rowsie, Michael Shroneder, and William T. Dickinson."

Title believed to be good, but I shall only pass the title vested in me by the deed of trust.
