Andrew Auld had received his interest from Charlton probably in the year 1827 and later he built his house and is living there now. No one had objected at the time Charlton's property was put up for auction by Thompson. When Charlton came and said this property is for him, then this sale is proper. He arrived here in the year 1844."
Thompson, sworn and stated, "I was the Policeman at the sale of this property. That was probably in the year 1833. That property was sold at an auction and Dominis had bought that place, but if Charlton should say he (Dominis) has not entered his place, then it is still for Auld. However there is extension then it is gone. When Charlton returned, I did not hear his statement concerning that property."
