Chain.

Plotting.

Conduct.

“14th. Your chain must be often inspected, and preserved entire.

“15th. In plotting, great attention and nicety is required to ensure accuracy. Your work must always close neatly. It must never be forced, but carefully revised and corrected. Sometimes, indeed, where great attention is not paid in the first instance, it will be necessary to return to the field, where errors most frequently originate.

“ 16th. Sobriety and steadiness must be observed, as well in respect to your men as to yourself, else there can be no reliance upon your work.

“17th. In all surveys made by you, by order of Court, the plat you return must be laid down by a scale of ten cbains to an inch, and to designate, by dotted lines, each separate tract, if more than one grant.

“18th. No plat will be entered in the office for record without at least one station on every

line."
