      Terry's Deposition
      I David Terry of lawful age so testify and say, that about forty six or forty seven years ago, I was hired by James Noble of Boston to assist as Chainman in running the lines of a tract of land said to be eight miles square, a Mr Jonas Jones was the Surveyor- I recollect that we went from Damariscotta so called over to Broad Cove so called, and from there to Muscongus Bay as it was called; and beginning at a large pine tree on the Westerly side of said Muscongus Bay (which the surveyor requested me and the other Chainman to notice, and which I think said Jones marked) we run a long Distance through the woods - I cannot now positively say what particular courses, or what number of miles, but I rember we run to Damariscotta fresh Pond and some Distance on the Western side of said Pond.
