”The following recommendation was presented:
STATE OF NEW YORK:
Albany, November 21, 1922. Proposal 466.
Commissioners of the Land Office, Albany, N. T.:
Gentlemen.— Would recommend the purchase of land described as follows:
Totten & Crossfield Purchase
Lot 97, north part,
being so much of the lot, as is not now owned by the state.’ This small parcel is entirely surrounded by State land. It is covered with first growth hardwood forest, all excellent quality. On account of its location and character believe it desirable land for the State to acquire and recommend its purchase from J. A. Tackaberry and Ada E. Ware, and others, at the price of $18 per acre.
Very truly yours,
The Comptroller offered the following resolution and moved its adoption:
Resolved, That the Commissioners of the Land Office approve the recommendation of the Conservation Commission to purchase from J. A. Tackaberry and Ada E. Ware the lands described in above recommendation at $18 per acre without reservation.
Seconded by the Treasurer and unanimously adopted.”
