The count is in accordance with the record provided to me by the previous Manager Schierraad. Ioh. Henr: Mouse. -

Fremdeeles announced that the trustee had saved some dilapidated roofs and masonry stones from the dilapidated hut and several houses described in this business. thus alone had to be judged over the head, the court could not employ this post more closely than that the roof tiles were assessed for 10 rdr. and Muursteenene for 2 rdr. Furthermore, the Trustee did not have to give up. -

Thus the requisition given to this business had been completed as accurately as possible in the circumstances. The court added to Alleene with regard to the tax rate that since especially the old houses as dilapidated become smoother daily, their value if it is not timely evaluated after the hand will be considerably diminished and soon disappeared. Several of the Inventory Varieties Depressed by Rust and Their Nervous Value or Employee Price shows it. … ».
