THE undersigned respectfully informs

the Public that he has had the town

of Montgomery re-surveyed, and is now

ready to make sale of Lots to those wishing

to purchase.

    The lands surrounding Montgomery,

known as the Lake Creek Settlement, being

of such a rich and fertile character, and hav-

ing a rich and industrious population, it is

destined to be, in a short time, a town of con-

siderable importance,

most flourishing, populous and intelligent

county in the Republic.  It is situated on

an elevated ridge, which divides the waters

of the San Jacinto river and Lake creek.

same latitude.
