Showeth unto your Honor, your orator, the said Samuel N.

Candler his executor who qualified as such & took upon himself the burthen of execution thereof - That the said Zachariah at the time of his death was seised & possessed of a large real estate lying and being in the counties of Buncombe, Henderson & Yancey commonly called "Speculation lands", that the said testator empowered his said executor to sell said lands upon certain trusts which by reference to said will and testament will more fully affirm - That said Geo. W. Candler as executor aforesaid did under said power sell several tracts of land & executed bonds for title for other tracts to divers individuals retain the title until the purchase money was paid - That on the 13th day of April 1853 he executed a bond for title to Wilson Boyd one of the defendants in consideration of three hundred dollars secured by note of said Boyd bearing date 13th April 1853 and payable in six equal annual instalments for the following tract of land, bounded as follows to wit, beginning on a line of a six hundred & forty acre tract formerly belonging to one Abraham Reynolds on the top of the ridge between {his} Wilson Boyd's old place & Thomas {James} Jones running with that leading ridge to the top of the Wolf Top Mountain and with the top of the mountain between the waters of Bill Moore Creek & Bent Creek, and with the same edge of mountains running to the old Billy cove gap & from the cove gap, a little cove to the top of the little pine ridge and with the top of that ridge down to Rachele Jones' line, there with the line of Rachele Jones and Laura's heins, and with their line until it strikes the line of Robert Boyd, there with his line until it strikes the line of Wilson Boyd's two hundred acre tract bought from Daniel Reynolds there with Thomas Jones' line to the beginning - containing twelve hundred acres more or less. Your orator further showeth that the said bond for title given to Wilson Boyd has been lost without having been proved & entered as the law requires - that the said George W.

Candler his son administered upon his estate, that the note given {by} for the purchase money has been paid by your orator together with all accruing interest upon the lease - that the said Wilson Boyd on the 10th day of February A.

Lusk- Intend in consideration whereof and for as much as your orator {is} can only have adequate relief in the premises in a Court of Equity, where matters of this nature are properly cognizable and relievable. - To the end therefore, that the said Wilson Boyd, W.
