Pàgina 258 - All the corners marked in the surveys, returned by the surveyor general, or by the surveyor of the lands south of the state of Tennessee, respectively, shall be established as the proper corners of sections, or subdivisions of sections, which they were intended to designate ; and the corners of half and quarter sections, not marked on said surveys, shall be placed as nearly as possible equidistant from those two corners which stand on the same line.
