The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 62



There are about 315,518 acres now open for selection, either as surveyed or unsurveyed land, in sections of sizes varying from a few acres up to the limit of 2,640 acres. The greater portion of this land is covered with forest, sometimes heavy, sometimes light, generally with enough timber scattered through it to provide for fencing and building. The soil varies very much in different districts, from poor clays, or light soils, up to good agricultural lands, and the prices vary also from 5s. per acre up to about £,2 per acre, according to quality of soil, accessibility, &c.
